FIFA World Cup 2022, Argentina Vs Mexico Preview: Lionel Messi Under Pressure To Deliver Against Mexico
Argentina Vs Mexico.A loss here would put an end to Lionel Messi and Argentina’s participation in the FIFA World Cup 2022. Mexico has never defeated Argentina in three World Cup appearances.
During the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Doha, a chant has been going around among Saudi Arabian supporters, and even some Brazilians. (Also in Football)
Messi is missing. We dislocated his eye! They sing in Arabic and use a slang term that means to humiliate someone.
A humiliating 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia has put Lionel Messi and Argentina’s chances of competing in the tournament in serious and unexpected jeopardy.
Argentina needs to respond quickly against Mexico on Saturday, or else a humiliating early exit is in store. Lionel Messi stated, “We always said we would look to win every game, and now more than ever.”
Now that Martino is the team’s coach, he hopes to lead Mexico through Argentina and into the round of 16 and beyond. After all, in each of the previous seven World Cups, Mexico has infamously lost its opening encounter of the knockout stage, twice to Argentina in 2006 and 2010.
This time, the teams’ meeting occurs during the group stage, but even after only seven days of the competition, it already feels like a make-or-break situation.Argentenia vs Mexico
Martino, whose nation drew 1-1 with Poland in its opening Group C match, said, “I don’t think the result they had (against Saudi Arabia) changes their method of playing.”
Certainly, something needs to change with Argentina. Since he hadn’t dropped a game prior to the Saudis’ rally at Lusail Stadium on Tuesday, this is Lionel Scaloni’s first crisis as Argentina’s coach, and it will be interesting to see how he handles it. Will he offer the same players a second chance to atone? Or did he notice enough mistakes in the first group game to need to alter his starting lineup?
The players that appear to be most vulnerable are centre back Cristian Romero, full backs Nahuel Molina and Nicolás Tagliafico, and midfielders Rodrigo De Paul and Leandro Paredes. Messi won’t be leaving the starting lineup, of course, even though he could be used in a different way.Argentina Vs Mexico
Nothing else to do but get up and leave, replied Scaloni. “We still hold to the same way of thinking. They had us as favourites going into the game (against Saudi Arabia), but anything can happen in a World Cup. You must improve the areas that did not go well. Argentina vs Mexico
In three attempts at the world cup, Mexico has never defeated argentina, and Martino’s worst loss as coach of Mexico came at the hands of his native team. That occurred in September 2019 during a 4-0 victory that lautaro martnez scored a hat trick in.
Any victory for Argentina on Saturday at Lusail Stadium, where the world cup final will also be played on December 18, will be welcomed. Looking that far ahead for either team would be foolish. Argentina Vs Mexico.
