The Argentinean Gerardo Martino will live this Saturday in Qatar. The Argentina-Mexico puts Tata at a very cruel crossroads, with the real possibility of eliminating his native country from the World Cup as the Mexican coach. Always pending the result of the Poland-Saudi Arabia, the albiceleste could be out in the event of defeat. Quite a challenge for Martino.
With all the spotlights on him, the Mexico coach appeared this Friday before the media in one of the press rooms of the Doha Convention Center. "We have a way of playing but it cannot always be applied, but in that case we have to adapt so as not to jeopardize the possibility of a victory," he responded in terms of football in the duel against Argentina.
But the feelings were on the surface and his apparently calm face hid a lot of nerves before one of the most important games of his career. “What happens in soccer I leave it in the context of soccer. I am aware of the importance of the game for both Mexico and Argentina, but I will do the impossible for Mexico to win, ”she answered, dodging her feelings. "What would you do in my place? I can tell you in which hospital I was born, details of my childhood… I am Argentine but I work for Mexico”, he replied to a journalist.
Argentina's initial defeat against Saudi Arabia took everyone by surprise, including Martino himself, who opened up a little more when it came to assessing the significance of the duel that will host the impressive Lusail stadium. "When the draw was held, I never imagined a scenario like the one that will take place this Saturday," he admitted.
