With increasingly intense questions, Mexico coach Gerardo Martino wants to see a team take the initiative and weigh in at home.
After a bad season against Canada at the Aztec Stadium, Mexico will try to get back to winning ways by hosting Honduras and regain first place in the Concacaf qualifying round for the World Cup.
The national team suffered a collective breakdown and drew 1-1 with the Canadians on Thursday. He gave the United States first place in the octongle, which has eight points but a good goal difference.
“I think the other day we played a draw with Canada, which left us behind in the first half and we didn’t get the best version of football,” said Gerardo Martino of Argentina.
Tata had said that Mexico would try to get nine points in this second round of matches to bring the country closer to the rankings. He will close the triple date with a visit to El Salvador on Wednesday.
The draw against the Canadians sparked criticism against Martino, who had previously been questioned after losing the Nations League and Gold Cup finals, both against the United States.
Now they have to settle for a seven-point potential crop, and it will all start today against a Honduran team who had nightmares at Azteca.
“The most notable feature (of Honduras) is going out to find the game, we’ve seen him play at home with the United States and as a guest with Canada,” Martino said. “It’s been a team trying to get out and play, we expect a tough game like Canada.”
Katrachos beat the Tricolor 2-1 in the 2014 tie for Brazil and then Russia drew 0-1 in the first round at Rumba for 2018, although they lost 3-0 in the final hexagon.
It is important for Honduras to further eliminate the possibility of playing in Qatar.
The Cataracho team has barely added three of 12 points to the controversy and has come from a goalless draw at home against Costa Rica. They will host Jamaica on Wednesday.
In today’s other matches, Panama will host the United States, Canada will visit Jamaica and Costa Rica will host El Salvador.
