Mexico, with a lot of defensive weaknesses, Australia and Uzbekistan

It’s been a long time since the defense of the Mexican national team had nights as terrible as the two recent games under the direction of Jaime Lozano against Australia and Uzbekistan, where they ended up recording two 3- 3 boards.

The serious thing is not the result itself, but the performance of the Mexican low team since the doubtful performance of the skilled Guillermo Ochoa, as well as the defenders used in the two games, such as Julián Araujo, Edson Álvarez, Johan Vázquez and Jesús Gallardo , against the koala and kangaroo squad.

While Kevin Álvarez, Gilberto Sepúlveda, Johan Vázquez and Jesús Ángulo played against the Asians, who undoubtedly had a bad performance that the two opponents scored five goals against them in six arrivals.

Many things can be argued, but the truth is that the Mexican team assumes a very low-level role in the dangerous zone, where the defenders and goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa are involved in a spiral of failure that ended up showing a lot of weakness and the urgency to improve for more difficult duels like the match against Germany in the next FIFA date in October.

In the first duel against Australia, except for the penalty which was a direct game, the other two goals were fatal, where the Australian team had almost no goals and at the end of three shots they scored two goals where it is believed that Jaime Lozano puts the best of his repertoire.

Meanwhile, against Uzbekistan, the failures of Kevin Álvarez, Gilberto Sepúlveda and Johan Vázquez can be seen in the first two goals of the Asian team, while in scoring the final tie, Memo Ochoa has one of his worst attempts in the bag -good times through food. Otabek Shukurov’s free kick at the first post in a bad set.

The truth is that the performance of Mexico’s defenders has opened various doubts, especially since Mexico has again shown deficiencies on the ball from above, where historically the national team has had terrible nights.

So the performance of the low Mexican team calls for reflection and urgency to increase their level, especially from some players who should have more experience like Edson Álvarez, Kevin Álvarez, Johan Vázquez, who have more experience in this type of duels and others that are in greater demand.
