The Mexican team is competing for its ticket to the grand final of the Gold Cup against its similar of Canada. After the attacks by the Maple Leaf team due to the neglect of the Aztec defensive back, before concluding the first half, the genius of Rogelio Funes Mori appeared, who put a pass to Jesús Corona. The ‘Tecatito’ was knocked down inside the area and the whistler leaned on the VAR to score the penalty.
The person in charge of executing the punishment shot was the soccer player of the Blue Cross Machine Orbelín Pineda. The ‘Maguito’, true to his custom, observed the goalkeeper, watched the goal times to shoot with a light touch with the inside leg and thus open the scoreboard. What was emotional and what drew attention was how the Mexican footballers concentrated to hug each other and dedicate the goal to the father of Jonathan Dos Santos, who hours before starting the match lost his life.
This is how those led by coach Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino went up on the scoreboard against Canada. The first half has finished and it is expected that the errors and inattentions that were to nothing to cause goals against will be corrected. If Mexico continues with the intensity of the last minutes, it will get its ticket to the grand final of the contest.
