The historical goalscorer of the Mexican National Team and one of the main absences in this World Cup, Javier “Chicharito” Hernández, wanted to send a message of encouragement to his compatriots after the defeat of Mexico against Argentina by 2-0.
“It is still possible, there are still many possibilities, our beautiful country can still access the next phase. Let’s keep supporting“Hernández Balcázar wrote through his stories on the Inbstagram platform.
And this is how Mexico has starred a World Cup Qatar 2022 deficient for them in terms of functioning. With Chicharito’s message, the tensions of those who believe that the Galaxy scorer should have been present with the team, a team that in two presentations add up to zero goals, are intensified.
The absence of Chicharito in the Qatar 2022 World Cup
The absence of Chicharito is, together with that of Santiago Giménez, the most notorious for El Tri in the World Cup and now it is more noticeable when the team has zero goals in two games played. The questioning of the choice of strikers at this time is more than notorious considering that neither Martín, nor Raúl Jiménez, nor Funes Mori have managed to direct the Mexican victory, much less pierce the nets of the opposing team.
What is left for Mexico
Mexico has one match left against Saudi Arabia, a team that has shown much more than expected and which will be very complicated on the pitch. However, Mexico has elements to play a good game and achieve the result, to finally hope that the Argentines and Poles will do.
The defeat against Argentina was a blow, however, Mexico’s aspirations after this match remain intact and it remains to wait for the last date for the definition of the group.
For now the group is led by Poland with four units, followed by Argentina and Saudi Arabia with three points and the Mexican National Team is in the basement with one point and not even a goal scored.
