After a disappointing Qatar 2022 World Cup, Mexico has embarked on a very important rebuilding process. Read here to see the full 2023 schedule.
Mexico had their worst performance in a decade at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Led by coach Gerald Martin, the team failed to face Argentina, Poland and Saudi Arabia in Group C and were eliminated in the first round. Since 1994, Mexico has always reached at least the Round of 16. This amazing streak is over.
Mexico’s next step is the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which will be held for the third time in its history. It would be a record. In 1970 and his 1986, Mexico had their best-ever appearance percentage in the quarterfinals when the famous Tori also played at home. This time we have to aim higher.
2023 will therefore mark the beginning of a new era for Mexico, with no time to lose until the next World Cup. A new coach comes into play in the process as Gerald Martin’s contract was not renewed. Click here for the 2023 Mexico National Team roster.
