One of the best national teams in North America is frequently cited as being Mexico. However, the team lacks the star power of earlier Mexican teams because players like Javier Hernandez have been benched and Andres Guardado is battling with age-related problems. Let’s now examine the club’s current roster and accomplishments without further ado.
Mexico’s national football team, which represents Mexico in international football, is governed by the Mexican Football Federation. As a member of CONCACAF, it takes part. We list the players who were selected to play for Mexico’s national football team on this page.
Mexico has earned a spot in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. They defeated El Salvador 2-0 on the penultimate matchday of CONCACAF’s final qualification round, ending a tumultuous qualifying run on a positive note.
The team’s opening matches are listed below. Group C is where they will play. Argentina on November 26, Poland on November 22, and Saudi Arabia on November 30.
Mexico’s national team has participated in the competition since the first World Cup in 1930 and has participated in every tournament since, for a total of 16 tournaments. However, on three occasions—in 1934 (against Italy), 1974 (against West Germany), and 1982—it hasn’t advanced to the actual finals. (Spain).
El Tri stunned defending World Cup champions Germany 1-0 in the tournament’s opening game, which ranks among the biggest upsets in World Cup history. Together with Brazil, they are the record-holders for the most consecutive second-round appearances.
Since 1994, the team has qualified for seventeen consecutive World Cups, making it one of only six countries to do so. Their finest World Cup results were quarter final appearances in the 1970 and 1986 tournaments, both of which were hosted by Mexico.
The team has won eleven CONCACAF confederation titles, including two NAFC Championships, one North American Nations Cup, one CONCACAF Cup, and two gold medals from the Central American and Caribbean Games. It has also won eight CONCACAF Gold Cups and three CONCACAF Championships (the competition’s predecessor to the Gold Cup).
With victories in the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup and the 2012 Summer Olympics, it is one of just eight nations to have won two of the three main football competitions (the World Cup, the Confederations Cup, and the Summer Olympics).
