Argentina coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino admitted, on Wednesday, that the match against the United States is a priority in the team’s minds
Mexico will receive the United States on Thursday at the Azteca Stadium in a decisive duel for both teams
Martino admitted that the match will depend on performance in
the middle of the field and that the mentality of the Mexicans is to dominate in this sector
Mexico comes from losing three matches with the United States, in the finals of the Nations League
and the Gold Cup, and in the elimination duel on the ground of its competitors
“As head of the coaching staff and driver of the group, I try to manage what’s within my reach, and what they mention (on social networks) is out of my reach and I just have to work,” he concluded.
Mexico will jump into second place in the game and almost get a ticket to the World Cup, but even if they lose, they can go directly to Qatar 2022, Sula and El Salvador, in Azteca, on Wednesday 30th.
Mexico has been present in the last seven World Cups, reaching the Round of 16 and Martino’s goal is to reach Qatar and qualify for at least the quarter-finals.
