Mexico Team Analysis: 2022 FIFA World Cup


Mexico has always been a powerhouse in the world of football, but they have never managed to win the FIFA World Cup. They came close in 1970 and 1986, but they have never quite made it over the hump. With the 2022 FIFA World Cup being held in Qatar, Mexico will once again have a chance to make history. But what does their team look like? And can they finally win the coveted trophy? In this blog post, we will take a look at Mexico’s team and see how they stack up against the competition. We will also analyze their chances of finally winning the FIFA World Cup in 2022.

Mexico national team manager Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino had promised that the list of players he named to the final selection for the FIFA 2022 World Cup will be free of surprises.

El Tri’s curiosity came in the form of injuries, particularly among the forwards. Mexico has struggled with scoring troubles in recent months, with the finest Mexican strikers suffering for fitness and form, and it’s unknown whether any of them will be able to recover in time.

Mexico released their preliminary World Cup lineup on October 26, followed by the final 26-man roster on November 14.

The following is Tata Martino’s final 26-man roster for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Tata Martino had until Friday, October 21 to submit an official preliminary list of 35-55 players to FIFA, from which he will select his final 26-man team for Qatar on Monday, November 14.

The most successful national team in the CONCACAF region is now ranked 9th in FIFA, and they played admirably in the previous qualification match. Mexico’s men’s national team has been drawn in Group C of the 2022 FIFA World Cup alongside Argentina, Poland, and Saudi Arabia.

Chicharito’s LA Galaxy colleague Julian Araujo, Monterrey playmaker Rodolfo Pizarro, and Chivas midfielder Fernando Beltran were all left out. Pizarro is a well-known character, but he has not been extensively involved with the national squad since 2020, while Beltran has been a periphery player in recent months.

Mexico has appeared in the World Cup knockout stage seven times in a row, reaching the Round of 16 each time.

But the route has ended there, with seven straight Round of 16 defeats to the likes of Brazil (2018), Argentina (2006 & 2010), the Netherlands (2014), Germany (1998), Bulgaria (1994), and the USA (2002).

After analyzing the Mexico team, it’s clear that they have a lot of potential for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They have a strong group of players with experience in big tournaments, and if they can gel together as a team, they could be a force to be reckoned with. However, their recent form has been inconsistent, so they will need to find their rhythm if they want to make a deep run in the tournament. Regardless, Mexico is always a dangerous team in international competition, and we’ll be keeping an eye on them leading up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
