But this label and importance has affected it within the region. Edson Álvarez believes that many times Mexico has missed results due to overconfidence.
“I feel that Mexico against this type of rivals, in the worst scenarios, is when we get the best results and when we play with teams of “lower hierarchy” it is where it is difficult for us because we believe we are superiorbecause we believe that for being Mexico we are going to winry with this type of rivals we take a lot of responsibility and we are focused on the game”, Álvarez sentenced for TUDN.
However, this logic It would not have to influence the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The Aztec team will face tough rivals like Argentina and Polandwithout underestimating the selection of Saudi Arabia that earned its place in the World Cup.
