Gerardo “Tata” Martino knows he can’t fail again if he wants to stay as Mexico National Team coach. After a disappointing 2021 where El Tri couldn’t beat USMNT, the Argentinian coach knows that he can’t lose again against the Bars and Stripes.

But in order to be able to beat them in the upcoming FIFA match window, El Tri needs a striker that can create as much opportunities as Raúl Jiménez, something that neither Rogelio Funes Mori nor Henry Martín can.
Alejandro Viniegra has everything to become the striker that the Aztecs needs, and he has even referred to as the Mexican Neymar, but if Mexico National Team wants to guarantee his permanence with El Tri, they’re going to have to call him soon, as Brazil is also interested in the youngster.
Where does Viniegra plays?
After a season playing in the USL with North Texas SC, Viniegra joined Red Bull Bragantino for the current season, where he’ll be playing in Brazilian top flight. The 19-year-old forward has played for both Brazil and Mexico Academy teams, but he currently is part of the Aztec U-21 squad.
