Match: Argentina – Mexico
Date: Wednesday, 9th September 2015
Start time: 03:00 am
While in Europe are playing games for qualifier of Euro 2016, then in other continents is not boring. Argentina and Mexico face each other in a friendly match at the stadium AT & Tv Arlington in Texas. The match is on Wednesday from 03:00 GMT.
“La Albiceleste” started cycle controls with rout over Bolivia with 7: 0 in the US city of Houston. Two goals in the meeting realized the three stars in the attack – Ezequiel Lavezzi, Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi, one goal and added Angel Correa.
Ezequiel Garay, Pablo Zabaleta, Lucas Biglia, Javier Pastore, Gonzalo Higuaín and Ángel Di María are incorporated in Argentina, although until recently were injured. They took no part in the match with Bolivia, but it is possible coach Gerardo Martino to give them a chance to record a few minutes in the upcoming match to enter into better physical shape.
“The idea is for everyone to take part in meetings with Bolivia and Mexico, but I’m still not decided what will be the team on Wednesday,” said Martino.
The match against Argentina will be the last test before the final to Mexico with the United States in October for a place at the tournament for the Confederations Cup in 2017 in Russia.
Ricardo Ferretti wants his players to show better production compared to their last match. A few days ago “El Tri” ended in a draw 3:3 with Trinidad and Tobago. Mexicans even had to rescue the loss after trailing 0:2 and 2:3 during the match. Ferretti will need to improve significantly the presentation in defense of their team if they want to bring more big hits from their upcoming opponent.
Otherwise Mexico unbeaten in nine consecutive games. At the end of July they triumphed in the tournament “Gold Cup”, beating Jamaica in the final 3:1.
Against Argentina, however, “El Tri” is in a bad string of five consecutive losses. The last success of the team over this opponent was in 2004 in a meeting of the Copa America.
Against Bolivia Lionel Messi came to pitch in the second half and a few minutes hint at huge class. Against Mexico Barcelona footballer expect to begin in the starting eleven. His partner will almost certainly be Sergio Aguero, but on the field we can see from the beginning and Angel Di Maria. Mexico showed weakness against Trinidad and Tobago and I do not see how it will stop “The Gauchos” in the upcoming match. I am almost certain that Argentina will reach new success over Mexico in recent years.
