At the beginning of 2019, the coach made his debut directing the Tricolor team, sowing hope for his way of working and methodology, convincing footballers and fans. Although for the Gold Cup he suffered up to eight casualties between personal decisions and injuries, Tata knew how to put together a winning group that has mixed good football passages and positive results.
The Argentine coach made his debut at El Tri in March 2019 and since then has led Mexico in 40 games with a balance of 29 wins, seven draws and four losses. In numbers, his results were very good, but certain important games in which Mexico failed, suggest that his stay at the helm of El Tri is not up to the mark.
In charge of the Mexico National Team, Gerardo Martino played 4 finals, of which he won only one, and lost another 2, something that he is still not forgiven for today. In this way, he fell the Concacaf Nations League by a score of 3-2 in overtime thanks to a penalty goal by Christian Pulisic and a missed by Andrés Guardado. Also, he lost in the 2021 Gold Cup Final 1-0, he also did it in overtime, with Miles Robinson scoring three minutes away from being able to go to penalties.
