Mexican soccer is a result player par excellence, but when it comes to the Mexican national team, criticism becomes exacerbated in most cases, especially when defeats fall to theoretically inferior rivals.
With the Gold Cup 2021 just around the corner and especially after the modest call of the United States without its stars, the tournament became the biggest obligation of the ‘Tata’ Martino leading the Mexican team, as if the rivals in the area did not exist or as if football was not full of surprises.
Whatever it is, This is one of the most consistent obligations that Mexico has and Martino must be aware of it.as well as you must know that the fall at the end of the Nations League it is a real failure that must be recovered as soon as possible.
Lose this gold Cup, which will not have the best version of the American painting, it would be a serious blow to the credibility of ‘Tata’, but above all it would aggravate a problem that drags from the Concacaf Nations League, where Mexico went to penalties against Costa Rica in the semifinals and where he lost on the hour to the United States.
Not for the result as such, but by a process that less than two years before the World Cup would have entered a pothole that would make the entire board of the Mexican Football Federation very nervous., especially because of the similarities it might have with the era of Jose Manuel de la Torre.
The ‘Chepo’ is the living example of how a process that he painted extraordinary during the first half of his tenure, is also capable of self-destruction from the inside to the playing field, all the product of a post-crisis crisis. Gold Cup and Confederations.
A crisis in the national team is very difficult to solve, mainly because there is no daily work or constant matches to improve the image. Here a defeat lasts for months and after the fall in the League of Nations, lose again in gold Cup would be to enter an alert state that would put the seat of ‘Tata’ Martino hotter than ever.
