El Tri needs to win or go home against Saudi Arabia and pray for results to their way to continue in Qatar 2022.
Mexico has disappointed in the World Cup. The Tata Martino team entered the tournament with many questions and few answers. A boring and lackluster draw with Poland was followed by a disappointing defeat to Argentina.
Now with just one point from six in play, Mexico need a win to stay alive, a draw won’t help but they also need to score goals if not El Tri will head home much sooner than expected.
So, what happens if El Tri lose to Saudi Arabia?
What if Mexico loses to Saudi Arabia?
A loss to Saudi Arabia would be the end of the World Cup for Mexico. It would mark one of the worst World Cup performances of El Tri in more than 40 years.
The last time El Tri failed to get out of the first round of a World Cup was in 1978 in Argentina. From 1986 until 2018 (except in 1990), El Tri have at least made a round of 16 appearance.
