Gerardo Martino won’t be in Qatar 2022 even if he classified Mexico National Team; this coach is his replacement

The Mexican national team needs to earn just one point to ensure their direct passage to Qatar 2022, something that seems attainable, especially since they will face a El Salvador squad that won’t have most of their usual starters.

But that doesn’t seem to be enough for the Mexican Football Federation and Liga MX owners, as they don’t believe that Gerardo “Tata” Martino is the coach that El Tri needs if they want to have a worthy participation in the World Cup.

That’s why they will vote to see if he remains in El Tri’s dugout or if he gets replaced with Miguel Herrera, who is ready to take over the Aztec squad once again, especially since he will have the chance of finally calling Marcelo Flores to the senior squad.

Marcelo Flores keeps impressing with El Tri U-20

One of the biggest surprises in the roster that Martino called for the current FIFA match window was the absence of the 18-year-old offensive midfielder, as he has showed how he can change the face of the team when he’s on the pitch, either is with Arsenal or with El Tri.

For now, he’s part of the tour that the U-20 squad is doing in Uruguay, where he’s been a starter in the three games they’ve played, and even scored a brace on the second game they played against UruguayU-20, showing that he’s ready to be part of the senior squad.

Herrera is aware of this, and he will make sure that Flores becomes part of El Tri’s roster for Qatar 2022 as soon as he replaces Gerardo Martino, as he knows that what the Aztec squad is lacking are young players with the talent of Flores.

One of his goals for 2022 is arriving in Qatar

When Marcelo Flores was asked if he saw himself playing for El Tri, he answered that he’s fully committed with his decision of wearing El Tri colors, even if Canada MNT have tried to convince him to play for them. Flores said that he has two goals to achieve in 2022: the first one is debuting in Premier League before turning 19, and the second one is arriving in Qatar with El Tri.
