Mexico already thinks of Argentina. The context of the match changed after the unexpected defeat of the albiceleste team. The tie between the Aztecs and Poland, in the other match of the first date of group C left Saudi Arabia as the unthinkable leader of the area. The remaining four matches, then, will be true finals. And as such, Gerardo “Tata” Martino, former coach of the Argentine national team and Spanish Barcelona, ​​takes them: “Now there will be two finals for each of the members of the group,” said the DT, questioned in the country by some former Mexican players about the level of his team.

And I add: “We will play the game we have to play. Neither the most crouched nor the bravest: we are going to play against the favorite of the group and a candidate to win the World Cup. I don’t think the result (loss to the Saudis) would change the way Argentina was going to play the second game”. Tata is facing a historic opportunity: if they beat the team led by Lionel Scaloni, he will eliminate them from the World Cup, whatever the result of the match between Saudi Arabia and Poland. “They are the things of our profession. We work for Mexico and we think of your well-being. We will try to do our best in that match”, the former number 10 of Newell’s Old Boys from Rosario expanded.

The soccer players of the Aztec team also begin to beat “the final” on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. at the Lusail stadium. Midfielder Luis Chávez talked about his recent losing record with Argentina (in Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010 it cost him elimination): “The key is in the mentality”, assured the soccer player from Pachuca. And he added: “To leave the results of past World Cups behind a little, focus on the fact that this is our time and take advantage of the opportunity that the teacher (Martino) gives us to demonstrate it. Against Argentina it will be a very difficult game. We know that we have to win to be able to put ourselves in the positions to qualify”, advancement.

Carlos Rodríguez, for his part, recalled that Argentine soccer players “They are human beings.” And about the game on Saturday he foreshadowed: “It will be a nice meeting. We both need the points. We all want to win. We look forward to the game with great intensity because it is the most difficult opponent in the group, ”he confessed.

Jorge Sánchez, who had a good game against Poland on the right side, added in the mixed zone at stadium 974, in the port of Doha: “It’s going to be a great game. Surely we will go out to propose. The games are completely different. Now we have to rest and then prepare the team to face Argentina. I know that they are going to see a different Mexico, that will seek to propose and that it will kill itself in each play and each game. Hopefully we can bring happiness to the fans and to our families”, he wished.

Alexis Vega, for his part, also anticipated what could happen on Saturday in Lusail: “I predict that it will be a very close match. The details will set the course. We are aware that with the defeat against Arabia they are going to want to go out and win the next game, yes or yes, as we do. Each ball will be defended to the death and we hope to bring joy to the fans”.

Uriel Antuna came on from the substitute bench against the Poles and was another of the footballers of the tricolor team who anticipated what the clash against the Albicelestes will be like: “We have to focus on ourselves. We continue to work on what is ours and we try to respect all our rivals on the pitch. We must play our football to achieve victory”.

The coach of the Mexican team knows that the team’s main deficit is up front. He needs to score goals. That is why he shows a modification in the attack: Raúl Jiménez, scorer for Wolverhampton, in the English Premier League, would play from the beginning in the place of Henry Martin, who made 9 in his debut against Poland. Jiménez would win the fight for that place against Rogelio Funes Mori, an Argentine soccer player trained in River, and who has scored 6 goals in 16 games during the Martino cycle.

Other possible modifications that Tata would try in the next few hours would be Kevin Álvarez on the right side instead of Jorge Sánchez, Héctor Herrera for Carlos Rodríguez and Néstor Araujo for Héctor Moreno. All of this will be discussed in the luxurious rooms of the Simaisma Al Muwab Hotel-Resort, the Aztec bunker during the World Cup.
