The party of the Mexican team front Saudi Arabia It is vitally important to the history of the three. Not only for the issue of being able to classify Round of 16 in Qatar but because of the need to score a goal in the world Cup or establish one of its most terrible statistics.
If El Tri does not score against the Arabs, then it would be the first time in the history of the World Cups that the Aztec team has failed to celebrate goals. This is because since 1930 the forwards or midfielders of the team have found at least one goal to celebrate.
And that in the history of the World Cups, the Mexican team has terrible performances like the one of the Argentina World Cup 1978when they lost all three games they played, but scored at least two goals in the tournament, despite being eliminated in the worst way.
The Tri that directs Gerardo Martino drew 0-0 against Poland and lost 2-0 against Argentina so far in the tournament of FIFA. His forwards have not had clear opportunities and he has already tried with Henry Martin and with Raul Jimenezwhile Rogelio Funes Mori he has stayed on the bench.
Last World Cup with the first two games without a goal
In chili 1962 It was the last time that El Tri did not start the World Cup with two games without a goal. That contest debuted with a 2-0 defeat against Brazil and a 1-0 loss to Spain. The Azteca team got up and in the third duel they beat the mythical team 3-1 czechoslovakiabut it was not enough to advance to the next round.
El Tri could once again have a very poor tournament
From the United States World Cup 1994fans of the Mexican National Team have seen good results in the Group Phase of the World Cups, even from that event, the Aztec team has qualified for the Round of 16 where they have been eliminated by various teams and under various circumstances.
The last World Cup where Mexico made a fool of itself was in Argentinian 78 when it was defeated by Poland 3-1, by Tunisia 3-1 and was also thrashed by Germany 6-0. However, it should be remembered that in the 1930, 1950 and 1954 editions, they lost all their group stage matches.
However, in Qatar 2022, the Mexican team runs the risk of repeating its poor performances of the past, except for the 1986 and 1970 World Cups that were played at home. Everything if they don’t beat Saudi Arabia and get knocked out sooner than expected.
The Aztec team has 90 minutes to change the goal statistics and hope that there are the right combinations to maintain the tradition of scoring, winning and reaching the Round of 16.
