Argentina vs Mexico: Argentina and Mexico meet in a friendly match in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday, which will certainly be like a home game with El Tri. A healthy number of Mexican supporters in the crowd should provide a great atmosphere at Alamodome, and fans of Tata Martino recently had something to cheer on. Mexico won its 11th title of the Golden Cup back in July, beating the United States, and at the same time recorded a 3-0 victory over the same opponent last weekend.
Argentina’s national team coach Lionel Scaloni held a press conference in Texas on Tuesday before his team’s friendly match against Mexico. His colleague Lionel Scaloni is not new to the Argentine national team or even Lionel Scaloni himself. Gerardo Tata Martino, the current manager of Mexico, was the coach of Argentina just a few years ago. As for Lionel Scaloni, these are Newell’s Old Boys graduates.
Mexico will play against Argentina on Tuesday at an international friendly match in San Antonio. It is expected that around 60,000 spectators will gather in Alamodom. The match will defeat Mexican manager Gerardo Tata Martino with his former squad led by another Old Boys player from Newells Lionel Scaloni. ESPN FC’s Tom Marshall and Tim Vickery on what to expect from the collision on Tuesday.
However, Scaloni expects a tough match on Tuesday. Speaking at a press conference, he talked about the Argentine team, the lost Tata final Martino and much more. Speaking of the team, here’s what he had to say: Argentina ties its horns with Mexico at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, as the South American side hopes to develop its promising game against Chile.
Albiceleste left with a draw after meeting with the winners of the America’s Cup 2016, but many believe that their show deserves much more. The people of Lionel Scaloni acted at a good pace and played their part in a spectacular impasse.
In addition, they seemed to cope well with the absence of their mascot Lionel Messi. Messi is serving a ban after his notorious ranting at CONMEBOL after the semifinal defeat of Argentina in the America’s Cup at the hands of Brazil. Scaloni would like his younger players to take part in the tournament more often, especially in connection with continuing education at the 2022 World Cup.
Mexico, on the other hand, entered the match in an unbeaten run of 11 games, as a result of which they won another CONCACAF crown with a gold cup. The Mexicans were irresistible in this tournament and ultimately defeated the United States in the final.
Consequently, Gerardo Martino will hope that his players will maintain the momentum accumulated by them over the past year. A positive result against Argentina can be of great importance in Mexico, which will become a real force on the world football front. People like Hirving Lozano and Raul Jimenez would also like to strengthen their growing reputation when the two sides cross the path to San Antonio. on Tuesday.
Diego Armando Maradona wanted Gerardo “Tata” Martino to return to the Argentine national team. And he will probably not be the only Argentine fan to envy the friendly match against Mexico in Alamodoma on Tuesday, given everything La Albiceleste has gone through since Martino left in 2016, as well as the ease with which Newell’s Old Boys Product was brought to life as an El Tri manager.
Tata, who still lives in the same region of Rosario where he grew up when he returned to Argentina, said that the fact that the game against Argentina meant little to him. Previews of the game on Tuesday in Argentina will be dedicated to Martino, but the 56-year-old businessman is fully engaged and fully focused on El Three.
The match on Tuesday is important for Martino not because he is against his former side, but because it is a chance for Mexico to test himself against a team that is superior to him, which is rare. After the summer, which ended with a victory in the Gold Cup against the United States, and a fall that began with the fact that last Friday, pushing the same opposition 3-0, the game was played against a non-CONCACAF world power, such as Argentina will be the litmus test of how faraway Mexico came under Martino this year.
What we want to see is the consolidation of an idea that one of the world’s powers is facing,” Martino said at a press conference in San Antonio last month. “Of the four or five elite teams, we play against one, and this is another step: try to impose our style of play against a very important national team.
