The Mexican team could not qualify for the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup despite having beaten their Saudi Arabian counterpart 1-2 at the Lusail Stadium. After the commitment, Edson Álvarez declared to the press, apologized for the elimination of El Tri and assured that it was time for a feedback process.
The figure of Ajax Amsterdam in the Netherlands did not hesitate to point out that this failure is not due only to the players and the coaching staff, but to more people that involve the national team.
“Ask them an apology, thank them, because the fact that they come is incredible, we really feel their support a lot. It is time to give great feedback from what we are doing wrong and not only on the court, but in everything, “he said this Wednesday in an interview with TUDN.
‘El Machín’ highlighted that the group became complex and despite that, Mexico had in their hands the possibility of advancing scoring more goals.
“We had a lot of arrivals, an opportunity to create the goals and unfortunately we couldn’t make it happen. You have to face things, put your chest to the bullets and face what is coming. The group was not easy at all, a victory against Poland was a better scenario; We did it, we looked for it, but we have a bad taste in our mouths, ”he said.
El Tri was unable to advance to the fourth game of the World Cup due to unfavorable goal difference. Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino’s men suffered from a lack of effectiveness. They could only convert both against Saudi Arabia and received a pair against Argentina and one this Wednesday.
The Aztec team leaves the top football event, being one of the teams with the worst scoring average and the oldest in the squad. This setback may cost the position of the Argentine coach, who was harshly criticized months before the World Cup.
The performance shown by Mexico is considered one of the worst in a World Cup since 1978, the year in which they also succumbed in the group stage. Since then the last eight had advanced.
