The Mexican team has one foot out of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and it is largely due to their lack of goals, since they have not been able to score so far in the championship and that has them against the wall, since this Wednesday they they will play the ticket to the round of 16 on the last date of the group stage against Saudi Arabia; only that there is a small inconvenience: to depend on themselves they need to win by a landslide, something that seems difficult due to the poor offensive talent that we have seen in recent games.
Regarding this issue, Cuauhtémoc Blanco, the iconic player of the Mexican national team, questioned El Tri’s ability to resolve the match and recalled when he faced Saudi Arabia, a team that made it clear that it is no longer the same, because football has grown from that time to date.
“How the hell are they going to do it (against Saudi Arabia), if they don’t score a goal. It is not putting forwards to put them in. Saudi Arabia is well worked, it’s not like when I scored three or four goals against them at the Azteca (1998) and has risen ”, he explained in an interview for Fox Sports.
“El Divo de Tepito”, who is now governor of Morelos, also He joked that if he could, he would get onto the field himself to give goal balls to the forwardsas he used to do in his time for Luis García, the “Matador” Hernández and Paco Palencia, among others.
“If they give me 15 minutes, I give two goal passes and I go out, because it can give me a heart attack“, he narrowed.
Finally, the legendary American player sent a message to the team, reminding them that their moment is now and that there is no margin for error.
“They must have two well-placed players, who go forward, attack and defend and that’s it. If not, they will grab your suitcase and it will be a big failure. for the Mexican National Team,” he concluded.
Mexico and Saudi Arabia will clash this Wednesday, October 30 at the Lusail Stadium at 2 pm ET / 11 am PT.
