The Mexican National Team is not going through a great moment and lost its last preparation match before the 2022 World Cup to be played in Qatar, and although there is pessimism regarding the performance of the Mexican team, someone bet on El Tri and is sure it will reach the final: Sal Canelo lvarez.
The Mexican boxer was questioned during his visit to Mexico City regarding the Mexican National Team, and although he considers that he may be labeled as crazy, he said that he fully trusts Gerardo “Tata” Martino’s pupils and believes that the national team will dispute the title of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, country to which he was invited, but he does not know if he will be able to attend, as he recently had surgery on his left wrist and is recovering.
Canelo Alvarez’s confidence in El Tri
“Maybe I’m going to sound crazy, but I bet that he will be in the final. Maybe (he will travel to Qatar), maybe they extended me the invitation and I’m looking into it. Because of my hand and rehab,” Canelo Alvarez said.
So, there is someone who has a lot of confidence in the Mexican National Team and sees it playing in the final on December 18, although first the team would have to get past the first round and then eliminate the powers it would surely meet along the way.
What’s next for El Tri and for Canelo?
Mexico is placed in Group C of Qatar 2022 along with Poland, Argentina and Saudi Arabia, the first game of the team coached by “Tata” Martino will be on Tuesday, November 22 against the Europeans, led by Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski.
Canelo defeated in his last fight the Kazakh boxer Gennady Golovkin and it will be until he recovers from his surgery that he will decide who his next opponent will be in 2023.
