The participation of the Mexican team in the Tokyo Olympics and they did it in an extraordinary way, since the painting of Jaime lozano he dominated at pleasure his similar France and he endorsed a 4-1 win that could even be wider.
With outstanding performances by Diego lainez Y Alexis vega, Mexico started with the right foot its participation in Japan and they filled the fans with enthusiasm, because although the French team left much to be desired in technical and collective aspects, they left a team that started as a favorite on the canvas.
Below we present the analysis of each of the Mexican players who participated in the match, along with their respective classification based on their individual performance.
The América goalkeeper had a good game under the frame, although it was not demanded on too many occasions. He stopped two dangerous shots and was about to save Gignac’s penalty. The best was his leadership, character and hierarchy to command the Mexican team.
Very good game from the right-handed side of the Eagles. Constant back and forth, without any kind of technical error, brave on the mark and an important weapon in the offensive volume of the team.
His inaccurate centers and some placement errors caused his qualification to be around eight, but the last assist to Eduardo Aguirre returned his well-deserved nine.
It was not his best game, because although he is a vital physical marvel in any team and that generates security for him in the air, this time he was not on par with his teammates, especially for his decision-making with the ball and his placement as a center-back. . The blunder came with a penalty committed in an absurd and predictable way.
Extraordinary match of the soccer player from Pumas. Total emotional control, good advances, aerial cuts and exit with a controlled ball. It was Gignac’s headache and he commissioned multiple crucial cuts to keep France at bay.
Erick Aguirre also had an outstanding left back, without much depth, but with good defensive work.
They won the position a couple of times with relative ease, but he always recovered and projected the team to the front.
Very uncomfortable match for Luis Romo. He started as contention nailed, very late and almost glued to the centrals.
The first half hour he was missing, without participation in the football generation and floating between the lines. had positive cuts and recovered balls, but never entered the rhythm of the game.
It was difficult for him to get into the rhythm of the game, because he started imprecise, badly placed and with errors in decision making; However, in the second half he improved his performance, clarified the game in three quarters of the court and gave three key passes to generate clear scoring opportunities.
He played 71 minutes and although he was not the protagonist of the actions, every time he touched the ball a sense of danger and depth was created with his services.
In the first half he was key to generating opportunities and shots, while in the second half he fell a golden opportunity to score that he did not miss.
When he gets hooked on the game it is a delight to watch him play. He had three outstanding plays that caused total danger and one of them ended in the French goal.
He gave an assist, generated imbalance on the left side and was associated well with ‘Charly’ and Córdova. He came out of change at 71 ‘in a surprising way, but left a great performance.
It cannot be denied that he is an intelligent player, he holds the ball in an extraordinary way, generates opportunities and is an important reference for the national team. Those elements made his party a decent and positive performance; however, he lacks a lot of goalscoring instinct.
Probably the player of the match, because in addition to scoring and assisting, he was a constant danger during the 83 minutes he played for the far right.
Total imbalance, I navigate between lines, distribution and auction. He only had some mistakes in releasing the ball quickly and driving excessively, but nothing to overshadow his great game.
Uriel Antuna – 9
He entered at 71 ‘instead of Diego Lainez and quickly generated dangerous opportunities. He brought overflow and freshness, until he ended up scoring the third goal of the match in a good cut into the area.
Jesus Esquivel – 8
He came in instead of Sebastián Córdova at minute 71 to overtake Luis Romo and did a good job in cuts and physical wear, although it was no longer so demanded.
Roberto Alvarado – 7
He entered at 83 ‘instead of Alexis Vega and although it was only a few minutes, he did not have the expected rhythm to revolutionize the right side nor did he contribute with hooks to the center.
Eduardo Aguirre – s / c
He played just two minutes, but that was enough to score the last goal of the game, after a French neglect.
