The group stage of the gold Cup for Mexico and managed to classify in the first place in their sector, after beating 1-0 to The Savior, a team that sold its defeat very dearly and showed one of the worst faces of the team in the era of Gerardo Martino.
As usual in 90min, below we present a brief analysis of the match with the three most notable errors of the Mexican team and the two positive points that can be rescued for the final phase of the tournament.
In the meantime, Mexico A rival is already waiting for the quarterfinals, one that will be obtained from the second place seeded of group D, composed of Honduras, Qatar, Panama and Suriname, so the team will have to be aware of the definition of that sector.
Mexico suffered before The Savior practically the entire second half and was saved from a deserved draw by the Central American team; However, everything could have been avoided if the two clear actions they had taken to increase the advantage had been taken advantage of in the attack axis.
Rogelio Funes Mori he did not come out in his day he forgave the rival frame, but in general the decisions in the last touch were not ideal for Mexico tonight.
The Savior got mad at Mexico based on good football, but instead of managing the game, touching the ball and pausing the good Central American rhythm, the selection of ‘Tata‘fell into despair.
Quick touches, without pauses and an unfounded obsession to turn to the front blinded a team that had to show its experience and put the game to sleep.
There were no set pieces, there was not a single correct center and it was confirmed that if Jesus Manuel Corona it is not lit, the selection suffers in generation of opportunities.
This team was not clear in the last third of the court and although at the moment there was depth, the last pass never had a bit of surprise. Monotonous and predictableThat was the action of Mexico in a game that probably should have tied.
Alfredo Talavera He had to intervene seriously on two occasions and both were solved with quality and experience. He showed that Mexico is in good hands in this part of the field and that there is also a goalkeeper who can save the ‘Tri‘at key moments.
Among the successes that can be rescued from this match, perhaps the most important is that the national team continues to know how to suffer and the matches continue to be won; However, this is not the way to go at Concacaf.
Tonight in dallas It was almost a miracle that the Salvadoran team did not tie the game, but ultimately this happened in a preparation match prior to the final phase and it is the perfect time to learn from mistakes.
Gerardo Martino You should see this game as a key one in making strategy for the rest of the game. gold Cup and also with a view to the World Cup qualification.
