The ‘Tri’ of the Argentine Gerardo Martino is also worried about having Hershey’s in front, as he also knows that for those of Berhalter the presence of Wolves striker Raúl Jiménez will be very uncomfortable for his defensive system.
During this 2021 Mexico has twice faced USABoth were in a final and in the games the defeat was for the ‘tricolor’ squad.
