Gerardo “Tata” Martino’s winning streak in front of El Tri is on the line when on Tuesday night Mexico undertake Argentina in San Antonio, Texas.
El Tri is presently riding on a high after demolish the United States 3-0 in last Friday’s friendly to make it 11 straight games with a victory since Martino’s selection. Under Martino, Mexico have been both in effect and a fun to watch, but factually, Argentina has always been a strong team to beat for El Tri, going 16 years without a win versus La Albiceleste.
That said, the Argentine-born Martino is predictable to go with all his top guns against the national team he once trained from 2014 to 2016. Most particularly, a front three of Jesus Manuel “Tecatito” Corona, Raul Jimenez and Hirving “Chucky” Lozano is in the cards, talented El Tri fans a performance of what could be one of the most vigorous Mexican front threes in current memory.
Obviously, the same can’t be said of Argentina, who will be missing a number of key players. Those hopeful to see Lionel Messi in action in the Lone Star State will be terribly dissatisfied as the Argentine superstar is presently serving a three-month suspension. In addition to Messi, Argentina will be without regulars like Sergio Aguero, Nicolas Otamendi and Angel Di Maria.
However, no matter the players on the field, Argentina always earns plenty of respect, and while on paper this might look like the most beatable Argentine side in a long time, no game against La Albiceleste is ever easy.
