In less than seven months, Mexico National Team will start their journey in Qatar 2022, when they face Poland National Team on November 20 in what will be the most important game of Gerardo “Tata” Martino’s cycle, as a victory will almost guarantee them their presence in the knockout stage.

But in order for El Tri to have chances of winning their debut game in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Gerardo Martino needs to find a striker that can score, as the options he’s called during the last year haven’t been able to score consistently.

The best striker that El Tri has had recently is Raúl Jiménez, who only scored three goals in the CONCACAF Qualifiers, all of them via penalty kick, but who was far from the top scorers of the confederation, as Cyle Larin scored 10 goals more than him.

Henry Martín scored two goals and Rogelio Funes Mori only one, numbers that worried the Argentine coach and made him call Santiago Giménez for the last FIFA match window, although the Cruz Azul striker didn’t have playing time.

A new option for Martino plays in England

El Tri will play three friendly games in late May and early June, in which Martino will keep looking for new options to solve the offensive problem that Mexico currently has, and one of the players that could fulfill the role is already scoring goals in England.

Santiago Muñoz keeps impressing everyone in Premier League with his talent and abilities, as the 19-year-old striker scored a difficult goal after starting the play with a wall pass on the final of the Northumberland Senior Cup.

Although Newcastle U-23 lost the game by a 3-2 score against Spartans AFC, Muñoz had the opportunity of score his third goal of the season, second during playing time as his first official goal wearing the Magpies colors was during a penalty shootout.

Can he play for Mexico?

Muñoz hold both Mexican and American nationalities, as he was born in El Paso, Texas. But he’s always been committed to play for the Mexican national team, as he’s been part of the academy teams, from the U-16 up to the U-23, and could have his first cap in June, either on the friendly games or the first two rounds of the CONCACAF Nations League, where Martino will call a team full of youngsters.
