“I want to be Mexican to eat quesadilla. I want to be Mexican”, andthe boy expressed between screams and annoyed.

The official account of the Mexico team watched the video and asked Twitter users to locate the little boy to surprise him. Well, this Saturday they took the boy to the concentration hotel in Mexico where several players from the national team received him and gave him a Tri uniform.

Orbelín Pineda surprised the little boy, who received the gift with a big smile, and then ate a quesadilla with the El Tri shirt on. Santiago Giménez also shared with the boy and even joked about taking away one of his favorite quesadillas.

Mexico in the Gold Cup final

Mexico and Panama will play this Sunday in Los Angeles (USA) the final of the Gold Cup, un tournament that the Canalero team has never managed to win, which will face the 'tri', the great dominator of the competition with eleven trophies in their showcases.

SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles (USA), the home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers of the NFL and which hosted the 2022 Super Bowl, will be the setting for this final that will be held starting at 4:30 p.m. local time (23:30 GMT).

The last clash between Mexico and Panama took place last June in the match for third and fourth place in the 2023 Concacaf Nations Leaguewith a 1-0 victory for the Mexican team.

If they succeed on Sunday, Mexico will confirm itself as the top winner of the Gold Cup, with 12 titles, to seven for the United States. For the tri it would be a blow of authority in one of the worst moments in its history, after being eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar and with ups and downs in performance before this tournament.

Panama returns to a final after spending a decade away from the biggest party of the main tournament for Concacaf teams.

Against the Mexicans, a rival whom he has only beaten twice in this tournament, they will have the opportunity to seal the best performance of a Panamanian team in the Gold Cup.
