Mexico face Argentina on Saturday evening in what will likely be a deciding match in pursuit of group qualification. Mexico opened up their World Cup campaign against Poland which resulted in a goalless draw after Guillermo Ochoa denied Robert Lewandowski from the spot.
Gerardo Martino, the manager of Mexico, was born in Rosario, Argentina but his allegiance is firmly set on a Mexico victory. “In the draw we never imagined a scenario like the one that will take place tomorrow, but we work for Mexico and we want the best for Mexico.”
“I would ask you if you were in my place, what would you do? Mexico has to win, we’ll look for Mexico to win. I already know where I was born, but I have to do the impossible for Mexico to win and I can’t do anything else.” (RÉCORD)
A loss for Argentina will knock them out of the tournament and increase Mexico’s chances of going into the next round.
