Mexico has good qualities. The Argentina squad was not prepared to accept defeat, considering it arrived in Qatar with the longest unbeaten run in their history (36 games).

Players warm up during Argentina official training on the eve of the group C World Cup soccer match between Argentina and Mexico, in Doha, Qatar, Friday (25/11/2022).

DOHA, KOMPAS — The defeat by Saudi Arabia is still difficult for Argentina to accept. They had played their best, but got punished by their opponent through two counter-attacks. Due to bad luck in the opening match, the La Albiceleste squad needed to immediately find consolation that can only be obtained by winning three points when they play against Mexico on Sunday at 2 a.m. Western Indonesia Time (WIB) (27/11/2022) at the Lusail Stadium, Lusail.

If they lose again, Argentina will reveal their own dark history in their participation in the World Cup. They have never not lost two opening games in a row.
