Argentine coach, Gerardo Martino, affirmed that the Mexican team must develop the game better and press more, if it wants to beat the Honduras team on Sunday in a match of the fifth day of the CONCACAF qualifying rounds for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. "That we elaborate the game better because the other day we did not have good elaboration and that we press better. Those two situations are preponderant and are the main characteristics of our team," said the strategist at the press conference.

Mexico drew 1-1 with Canada last Thursday at the Azteca Stadium and the team was highly criticized, questioning players who were not up to scratch. However, it seems that the challenge served something, because today Mexico excelled on the field of play, and thrashed its rival 3-0. 

Regarding the influence in favor of the fans at Azteca, the coach accepted that it is positive and decisive. "The extra football collaborates, although the essential thing is in the operation of our selection; there lie our best possibilities, the change comes from us and within what happens on the field of play", he concluded.
