The removal from Mexico of the World Cup Qatar 2022 still leaves several points for analysis, especially in the work Gerardo Martino in front of the National Soccer Teamhe. Although the gaze falls immediately on what was done during the three games that the team played in the World Cup group stagethere is more to observe in the work of the Argentine coach.

Although the journey of Tata Martino He had a good start on the Mexican bench, as time went by there were some points that affected the team environment as the World Cup approached.

The controversy with Javier Hernández

The Martin’s process had, since September 2019, a novel called Javier Hernández and his non-call for a subject of indisciplinewhich was never clarified by the strategist or by the Mexican Soccer Federation and much less for the player.

This problem grew stronger as the months went by and as the worldadded to that Chicharito Hernandez he scored goals in the MLS and because the National Team stopped scoring in the last year before the World Cup. The lack of clarity on the subject It was the main problem that led to the World Cup

Little competition to earn a place

A Martino little interested him let outside of the Selection during its process to players who were in a good moment and he preferred to continue giving opportunities to elements that were not at their best level, just because they had been in the process from the beginning.

players like Aldo Rocha, Jeremy Márquez, Ponchito González, and Víctor Guzmánamong others, did not receive a chance to show themselves, despite the fact that with their clubs they gave good results.

He did not know how to raise the team

The Mexican team you will fell completely behind the summer 2021when the Tricolor lost the end of the Nations League and of the gold Cup against the United States, results that led him to have a complicated tie.

The Tata Martino sought to lift the team, but it was not the same as it was at the beginning of the process and although it qualified for the World Cup as second place in the tie tied with Canada, which came first, it was more because of what the rivals stopped doing than on the merits of his team.

He left different players without a World Cup

In the 26 player roster that delivered, left out footballers who could help him a lot in the World Cup for difficult moments like those he experienced in the Group Phase.

Martino did not want to take advantage of the good moment in Europe Santiago Gimeneznor the imbalance that a footballer like Diego Lainez, who despite having few minutes in his club, every time he played with the National Team resolved matches as he did in Jamaica in January of this year and that ended up saving the Martin’s process.

Another player who was able to help was Eric Sanchezwho in the last year was the best means of containment of Mexican soccer and decided to discard it in the last cut, preferring to louis romowho did not play and improvising in that position with players like Hector Herrera and Andres Guardado.

He chose injured players and without rhythm

Other questionable point in the management of Tata Martino was that in the 26 player roster for the World Cup decided to count players who were injured and they came to recover about the hour, in addition to others who they had no rhythm of play.

Raul Jimenez He arrived injured and without rhythm due to a groin problem; despite having more than 70 days without activity he included it in the list, hoping that it would finish recovering; Despite arriving on time and without rhythm, it was one of his first changes in the World Cup.

In case of Rogelio Funes Mori was something similar, since the naturalized Mexican He was injured most of the semester before the World Cup and he arrived at the World Cup with little rhythm, although he only used him for a few minutes.

Another controversial call was that of Hector Herrera, player who in the semester before the World Cup barely played with the Houston Dynamo of the MLS and this Fhigh pace was noticed on the pitch.

So, in the absence of the report that Gerardo Martino deliver to the Mexican Soccer Federationthe sins he committed Gerardo Martino They were in plain sight long before you started the world Cup.
