2022 will be a year full of adrenaline and action for Mexico National Team. With their Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup spot secure, El Tri's schedule is already boosted with many games that include Friendly ones, the Concacaf Nations League and, obviously, the ones of the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
Tata Martino's team didn't deliver good sensations in the Qualifiers. From being at the top of the standings, it has been tossed to tossed down due to its incapacity to defeat the toughest rivals of the area, aka Canada, and the USMNT.
However, Mexico was obligated to qualify to the FIFA World Cup. After that task done, now they need to improve its level to be able to break the curse that haunts it since 1994: surpass the Round of 16. So, it would be natural to constantly have el Tri starring friendly games, cause the main tournament starts on November 21, and there will not be many options to master Martino's tactic idea.
Mexico national soccer team schedule in 2022
The Concacaf Qualifiers are a thing of the past. Mexico finally fiinished second after the USMNT didn't win in the last round against Costa Rica and El Tri defeated El Salvador (2-0) at the Azteca Stadium. At the very end, Martino's team made the same points as Canada, who sat at te top of the standings.
The CONCACAF Nations League games gave Gerardo Tata Martino the opportunity to see young players in action in official matches, in order to determine which elements can be added to the group of players he already has in mind for Qatar 2022.
As far as friendly matches are concerned, Mexico's National Team has already played some of them with unconvincing results. A win against Nigeria, but a categorical defeat against Uruguay and a goalless draw against Ecuador raised doubts about the team's reliability against elite rivals.
Finally, the event of the year is undoubtedly Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. Soccer's main tournament will not be held in the middle of the year for the first time, so the entire world may have to adapt its schedules to do not block the action on the Middle East.
