An Icon of the Mexican national team and Aztec football is close to saying goodbye to El Tri. Andrés Guardado revealed that the 2022 Qatar World Cup would be his last tournament with the Mexico shirt. The “Principito” (Little Prince) hopes to hang up his boots with great results at the World Cup.

The time would have come. Andres Guardado’s last tournament with El Tri is just around the corner. The Mexican soccer player will play the fifth World Cup of his career, but it will also be the last.

I will play the World Cup (Qatar 2022), and my participation in the national team is over. It’s my last dream, my last goal, and I also don’t see it as saying I want to go because I want to play in five World Cups. Nope. For me, it’s my last chance to get something for my team”, he sentenced in an interview with Rondo Magazine.

Andrés Guardado trusts the Mexican team

The “Little Prince” remains optimistic despite criticism of El Tri. Andrés Guardado used the gold medal won by Mexico at the 2012 London Olympics as a comparison. The Aztecs considered that this generation received a lot of criticism, and there was little hope, but they ended up taking first place.

I give it as an example with the Olympics, which were won in 2012 at Wembley against Brazil that generation and that team, all their preparation had been fatal and everything was negative, all the criticism around; that they are going to make a fool of themselves, and they brought the gold (…) I don’t know if it will give us that much, but I trust that we are going to be reinforced by everything that moves around internally we are going to close ranks, and we are going to convince ourselves that we are capable and we are going to show that when you least trust is when you get things“, he concluded.
