FT: Saudi Arabia 1-2 Mexico
Match report and response arising…
So, it was to not be for Mexico, who confirmed the spirit and attacking expertise that they so lacked in earlier video games this event. The intent was there from the primary whistle, and so they made Saudi Arabia look virtually non-existent all recreation. The Asian facet had no management and tried their finest to carry again the Mexican relentlessness however had no different selection however to endure it.
Martin was wonderful all recreation, as was Chávez, who can be my participant of the match. Hirving Lozano supplied fixed menace, however I am unable to assist however assume that generally he may have used his teammates greater than he did.
A remark about Ochoa and the defence is mainly ineffective, as they hardly participated all recreation. Sánchez at proper again did effectively in help within the first half earlier than Chucky moved to the left and Pineda linked up excellently with each of them.
However, ultimately, the 2 poor outcomes – particularly the lacklustre efficiency in opposition to Poland – is the place the issues lie for Mexico, and Tata Martino must reply critical questions on why he did not convey alongside the younger, upcoming, attacking expertise that Mexico has.
