Gerardo Martino: “Mexico need to score goals.”

Speaking at his press conference following the 2-0 loss to Argentina, Mexico coach Gerardo Martino insisted that his team would pick themselves up for their final Group C game with Saudi Arabia while explaining he still saw a route to the last 16. Martino also emphasised his team’s need for goals, having failed to score in both games so far in Qatar, after the coach was criticised for not selecting proven goalscorer Javier Hernandez, now 34, for his World Cup squad. Martino explained:

“In life, those of us who compete are used to picking ourselves up when we have an opportunity… I have no doubt that we are going to do that and we will give everything we have. While there is still a chance, we have to try. We have the same desire against Saudi Arabia – we need to score goals. Poland’s second goal earlier today hurt us, we need a winner in the other game [in the final round] and if it’s by several goals, all the better.”
