Once again the Mexican team fell in a final against the staunch rival of the United States. The country of the stars and stripes was proclaimed champion of the Gold Cup by beating Gerardo Martino’s Tricolor by the slightest difference. Without a doubt, a real failure considering that three months ago they fell in the same way in the great final of the Nations League.
It is helpless to see how Mexico He had around 5 clear goal plays, which were not taken advantage of by his players. From the initial whistle the team was motivated and with the impetus to play a good game to win the tournament title, however, the mistakes when defining and the failures in the lower part of the field ended up canceling their hopes when championship.
You can’t lose to a ‘B’ pick that showed absolutely nothing. You cannot fall this way when the opposing team proved to be bad in the definitions due to the carelessness of the defensive zone. What would have happened if this team was the largest in the United States? Without a doubt, the win against El Tri would have been a major scandal.
Coach Gerardo Martino you should sit down and reflect on what is to come. Today, once again, he got a major blemish on his résumé as technical director, falling in two finals against the United States. We must erase men like Carlos Salcedo, Néstor Araujo, Alan Pulido, among others, men who made it clear that they are not to be contemplated.
Now, the ‘Tata’ must study well those who will be his new squad, taking into account that there are important players in the Tokyo Olympics; Likewise, now it will be necessary to analyze the continuity of the helmsman in case of not playing a good role in the games towards the World Cup. Tremendous failure of Mexico!
