far from convincing, Gerardo Martino Saturday saw the Mexicans get the job done since beating Suriname 3-0 in June.

They didn’t concede a single goal last weekend.

Their victory over the Peruvians ended a three-plus-year winless run against South American teams and a four-match goalless run against teams from the CONMEBOL region.

We don’t see much of the midfielder’s originality, but he has international experience with just four players (Orbelin Pineda, Edson Alvarez, Hector Herrera When Andres Guardado) has appeared in about 400 games on El Tri.

Their quality at this point is a far cry from what we’ve seen from the Mexicans in years past, but the group is well ahead of the 11 games in 2022 with Mexico losing just one of those encounters. Below the goal, it’s 1-0 against Paraguay.

El Tori was famous for late goals in the final round of World Cup qualifiers.

Perseverance pays off. Columbia on Saturday was just such an example. The relentless pressure on the passive Guatemalan team finally paid off and made it possible. Nestor Lorenzo Take command of La Tricolore and start his spell with the Victory Note.

The 58-year-old former defender has created attacking options with an aggressive 4-2-3-1 system that emphasizes high pressure and quick ball recovery.

It took them 40 minutes to find a breakthrough against Guatemala, but in the end it was one of the more complete performances of the year and their best since beating Japan 4-1 at the 2014 World Cup. Scored the highest score in one match.

If there’s one thing that will disappoint Columbia from Saturday’s performance, it might be the 90th minute goal they conceded. Oscar Santisthe first one this team has allowed since February.

Since the start of the new millennium, Los Cafeteros have lost just two of their 10 games, winning 2-0 against Mexico in 2012.
