The effervescence that the Mexican team had was total after defeating 4-1 to France in his debut within the Olympic Games, because while the most optimistic saw the ‘Tri’ as a favorite for a medal, time gave the reason to the measured ones who asked for calm.
This team got its hit of reality before Japan, for although it was evident that the Gauls had put up practically no resistance, few imagined such a resounding change in ideas and football against the host team, so it was time to make an analysis with more arguments.
Jaime lozano he was overtaken, Sebastian Cordova without reference gallons, Lainez Y Vega replaced, Mountains Y Vasquez very poor in defense and a center forward who doesn’t score goals. In short, a selection lacking in all lines, covered in the deceptive glory of the match against France.
The reality is one and it is practically irrefutable. Mexico He is not a favorite for a medal in men’s soccerJapan, a team that was not a favorite on paper, exhibited the team’s greatest shortcomings and confirmed that the duel against the Gauls was too low a bar to measure.
But just as the Olympic ‘Tri’ He gave a terrible performance against the Japanese who made us imagine the worst, it is also true that there is a fairly wide margin for improvement and that the team is far from being crap. This is an extraordinary generation and your medal opportunities are real.
The following for Jaime lozano It will be key, since it is time to take advantage of the defeat, file the errors, work and improve, because the reading is clear: Mexico not as good team as it seemed; However, with dedication he is able to reach that level that he excited, silence the critics and bring a medal home.
This should be the turning point for the Olympic team towards the final phase of the tournament, the moment that unifies the interior of the group, that internalizes its football deficiencies and that comes out strengthened to fight to the death for eternal glory; while that does not happen, the reality will be that the Tri Olímpico lived in a deception after the first day.
