Mexico, a consistent player in the tournament, is taking part in the World Cup for the eighth time in a row and the sixteenth time altogether.

Mexico has participated in more World Cup tournaments than any other country except Argentina, Brazil, Germany, and Italy.

The path that El Tri took to get to Qatar was everything from smooth; it was littered with hard-fought draws and victories by the narrowest of margins. The squad, which has the most victories in CONCACAF history, came in second place in the eight-team qualifiers, behind Canada in terms of goal difference.

Both at home and away, they were unable to win against Canada and the United States, the teams that finished second and third, respectively, behind El Tri.

Mexico, who are ranked ninth in the world, have never advanced further than the quarterfinals in any competition. In each of the most recent seven tournaments, Mexico has been eliminated in the first knockout round.

Reaching the quinto partido (Spanish for “fifth game”) in the World Cup has become an obsession for Mexico’s colorful and loud traveling fans. However, because they are in the same group as the tournament favorites Argentina, it won’t be an easy assignment for them to improve on their recent World Cup past.

They will also go up against Poland, whose offense is led by Robert Lewandowski, who was awarded the Gerd Muller trophy for being the best striker in this year’s competition. After breaking the record for most goals scored in a single Bundesliga season with 41 goals for Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski was named the men’s player of the year by FIFA in the year 2020. El Tri will also go up against Saudi Arabia in this match.

It is anticipated that Mexico’s manager, the Argentine Gerardo “Tata” Martino, will select a roster that includes a combination of seasoned veterans and up-and-coming players. Guillermo “Memo” Ochoa, who is 37 years old and plays the position of goalkeeper, is targeting a participation in his fifth and most likely final World Cup.

Former Manchester United striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, who is now 34 years old, has high hopes of boarding the plane, but his relationship with Martino, a former manager of Barcelona who also played for Argentina’s national team, has not been the easiest. Hernandez is the all-time leading scorer in the country’s history.

In prior squads, Martino has chosen not to include Chicharito. Despite Chicharito enjoying a good season in the Major League Soccer with his team LA Galaxy, the manager stated in September that he would not take the small attacker to Qatar. If he is successful in getting to Qatar, it will be his fourth time competing in the World Cup.
