The Mexican team achieved its second consecutive failure this year by falling again in a final against the United States. There have been two trophies lost in a period of no more than two months in the summer of 2021, that of the Nations League and the Gold Cup.
With these failures, obviously, the Argentine strategist Gerardo Martino, the Mexican fans who hoped that those tournaments would be won without major complications, are not at all happy,
With these negative results, there has been no lack of criticism and accusations to the national coach, including, as expected, a sector of fans requesting his departure from the Tricolor bench, a situation that is totally unreasonable to think a year and a half after the Cup starts. of the World Qatar 2022.
It is complete madness to want to break the process towards the next World Cup, clearly these recent setbacks did not go down well, but the road to Mexico’s participation in the World Cup is going from strength to strength, without taking into account the threats from FIFA to eliminate punish Mexico for the homophobic scream.
In the same way, many Aztec followers already affirm that the United States has officially surpassed Mexico in soccer, personally, I do not think the same, and not because of a theme of “unconditional love” to the country, what’s more, I like that these arrive blows of reality and that El Tri does not feel invincible in the area and proclaims itself as the “Giant of Concacaf” always.
But I consider that Mexico has a much higher level than it has shown in recent months and some absences that the senior team had due to injuries such as Hirving Lozano, Raúl Jiménez, Andrés Guardado and those who attended the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Although clearly, the defensive zone is the one that has been struggled the most to find, since Carlos Salcedo it is at a low level and the center pair is not completely safe at this point.
With all and those limitations, in addition, of those that continue to be presented later, it is not optimal if you want to think about an apparent change of technician, with everything and his recent failures, Gerardo Martino and his coaching staff must arrive in Qatar in 2022, but the following World Cup qualifying commitments will be momentous.
