Tomorrow the Mexican team will be playing its third qualifying match of the month of October when they face off against The Savior.
This will be one of the most complicated games for the Tricolor because they will be visiting the always complicated field of Cuscatlán.
The Salvadoran fans are expected to play their role from the stands and be involved in everything to put pressure on the Aztec footballers.
This time in 90min we introduce you the 5 concerns from the coach Gerardo Martino prior to the match against La Selecta.
One of the biggest concerns of the ‘Tata’ is to suffer a disaster tomorrow. This situation would cause them to lose the undefeated of 5 games without knowing the defeat.
The last time Mexico lost an official match was on August 1, when they faced the United States in the grand final of the Gold Cup.
Likewise, a defeat in Cuscatlán tomorrow could cause the national fans to rise up against Martino’s work, despite his good numbers in front of El Tri.
Undoubtedly, Gerardo Martino will continue without sleep, due to the doubt generated by knowing who he will start as a starter in the match against El Salvador.
The two options are clear: Rogelio Funes Mori and Raúl Alonos Jiménez. Both with a low level of play and forcefulness in the most recent matches.
Perhaps the one who leads her to win is the ‘Twin’, this thanks to his goal scored in the last game. Although Jiménez has a European poster and this can also add up.
A matter similar to that of defeat, although this concern runs deep into the Argentine strategist.
If Mexico loses or draws, and if the United States and Panama win their respective matches, El Tri would be falling to third place in the competition.
That is the importance of getting all three points at all costs despite being a complicated venue.
Due to the losses of Jorge Sánchez and César Montes for this game, the first due to an injury, while the second suspended due to accumulation of cards, now the issue is to know who will occupy these positions.
The right back could be replaced by Luis Rodríguez; although Martino’s main question is knowing who to put instead of the ‘Puppy’.
Néstor Araujo, Héctor Moreno and Johan Vásquez are the viable options, although the Argentine will have to opt for two and leave one on the bench.
This has been one of the most difficult issues to resolve so far in the tie for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
On repeated occasions in 90min we have stressed the importance of immediately correcting the defensive zone, this due to the constant errors that have been presented.
The match against El Salvador will be a litmus test to determine how much progress has been made at this point and also to endure and overcome the pressure of a complicated field like that of Cuscatlán.
