Gerardo Martino's El Tri didn't play well against Costa Rica despite having managed to reach the semi-finals of the Nations League. Who was very critical of Mexico's performance was Diego Lainez, who came in as a replacement due to Erick Gutiérrez's injury.
The Tata national team fulfilled one of the faces that the coach wants, which is to maintain control of the ball. Despite this, he lacked the other part that is speed to find spaces to generate goal plays against a defense that was moving as a block.
After winning on penalties, Diego Lainez was very critical of Tri's performance and believes that the whole team must improve. "I think we have to work on all lines, we are a team that always likes to improve. We are willing to work to improve everything that we did not do well against Costa Rica and be able to enhance our virtues for Sunday," said the attacker in Press conference.
On the other hand, the Real Betis player referred to the position he held at El Tri and commented that he had no problem. "In any position that 'Tata' wants to use me, I will be willing to give my best regardless of the system they choose for the team. I am always at the service of the National Team," explained the player.
It should be remembered that Mexico defines the final of the Nations League against the United States, which has just beaten Honduras 1-0.
