Guillermo Ochoa, aware that there will be no qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, asks to play the Asia Cup, Copa América and non-friendlies in the United States
DOHA — Guillermo Ochoa understand that the removal of Mexico It was not expected in the first round, but according to his argument the team “competed well in every game.” Break down each of the games. “We competed very well against Poland with a team that closed in, then against Argentina many say about the approach, but it was good, because if you took it zero to zero it would have been said that it was very good and Messi’s genius changed the course and today the team gave themselves, got in and ran, we created chances, but we weren’t fine. It’s a pity, the team sweated until the end”.
According to the goalkeeper, it should not be judged by a result whether to advance or regress. He points out that there are good things that are being done and must be maintained and those that are not, improve them, because it is a mistake that happens in Mexico every four years, let it be said that the cycle is over, that the process is over and you start from scratch. We shouldn’t do it. There are young people who played in their first World Cup, young people who gained experience, who took a step forward and who will have to be maintained and guided for the next World Cup”.
Guillermo Ochoa remember that for the next World Cup there will be no qualifying rounds but only the Gold Cup because everyone knows the level it has.
“Hopefully we can be able to play the Asian Cup, the Copa América and not play the friendlies in the United States. That is not going to benefit us and just like that many things from the local tournament. There are good things, we must not destroy, things to add to it and that there are talented people who are going to have to push because there are teams that are preparing more as Arabia showed, which gave the surprise”.
The message he gave to the team is to be proud of what they’ve done and to raise their heads.
“Not everyone can live a world and play a world. We are lucky and privileged to be here because many things can happen in football, but they should feel proud because it was a well-played game, well-competitive as against Poland and Argentina, perhaps what made it difficult for us was the second goal scored by Poland to Arabia and the second from Argentina. That marked destiny, but the team competed and delivered. We wanted to give them joy, until today they had only celebrated the penalty that they had saved, but we wanted them to celebrate a goal cry. We had to go out and win, we wanted to give them one more joy, but the team shows its face, showed its face and sweated the shirt in every game for their country”.
Also, Guillermo Ochoa closed with the idea that he will seek to play his sixth World Cup in Mexico.
