The Selection of Mexico fell against its similar Argentina and left its chances of qualifying up in the air to the next phase of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. This fact has broken the hearts of millions of Mexicans -many of them who traveled to the Asian country- who dreamed of a better result for their country in the highest soccer tournament.
A lots of Mexican fans in Qatar even confessed that they are already packing their bags to return to their country because they see it as unlikely that El Tri will get into the round of 16. In this frame of hopelessness and long faces, Coach Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino was seen laughing with Argentina’s Lionel Scaloni.
And it is necessary to remember that Tata Martino’s nationality is Argentine and he also directed Albiceleste several years ago, so It is not strange that after the defeat of Mexico he approached the rival’s lobby to say hellobut the way he has done it has generated outrage among the fans.
The photograph in question did not make it to the mainstream media, rather it was an unforeseen event captured by a journalist from The reporter from Guadalajara present in Qatar, although he stressed that it was Scaloni, the one who sought the conversation with Tata Martino.
A few months ago, the El Tri coach was the target of criticism since in the midst of a bad game by the team and the lack of a goal (as now) he met with Scaloni in his native Argentina, just on the dates that in the Opening Tournament 2022 of Liga MX the repechage was played, a good opportunity to see chips for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Mexican fanatic once again expressed themselves through social networks and reaffirmed the little sympathy they feel for Gerardo Martino and the fact that he is Argentine and the defensive approach that he put against the Selection of his own country in the crucial clash of the second day of Group C of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Most of the comments revolved around the photo of the controversy with Scaloni, about the fact that he supposedly delivered the game and even some other meme.
Mexico will play it on the last date against Saudi Arabia and it does not depend on it, but an interesting cocktail of elements have to be given so that he can get into the round of 16.
