Due to the lack of goal of the Mexican team evidenced in the last two friendly commitments, The name of Brandon Vázquez, one of the top scorers in MLS, has emerged and that could be considered by Gerardo Martino as one of the options to mark and strengthen the lead, another of the big problems of the “Tri”.
Brandon Vázquez is a current Cincinnati FC player and has five goals in his personal account, the same that Javier “Chicharito” Hernández wears and also has the plus of having already been directed by Gerardo Martino in his time as DT of Atlanta United, a team with which they were champions. Despite the fact that the Argentine coach would practically have his players ready for the Qatar process, some adjustments are not ruled out within a team that only averages one goal per game.
Brandon Vázquez and his good words for Tata Martino
“Tata Martino is a wonderful coach, he has been very successful with his teams and he is very demanding with the players so that everyone is at a good level. Tata does not accept that they give less and proof of that is that we were champions with Atlanta in 2018, “said Brandon Vázquez in an interview with Mediotiempo.
The young attacker born in San Diego is a product of the Xolos de Tijuana youth academy and debuted under the command of “Piojo” Herrera in what was then the Copa MX, in the under 17 category he came to wear the colors of the Mexican shirt, but it was with the United States National Team that he dressed up to play the World Cup of the category in Chile in 2015 .
With “Tata” Martino wearing the colors of Atlanta, Vázquez played as a winger and scored a total of 8 goals in 26 games. Already when he arrived in Cincinnati he once occupied the position of center forward achieving the amount of five goals so far this season.
Although it seemed that Martino would not open the doors to any other player in the face of the Qatar 2022 World Cup process, the latest results instead call for other decisions to be made to lead the cause of the “Tri”. Vázquez’s good manners call him to be an alternative, although he is a footballer who could also play at the senior level with the United States, meanwhile the young man continues to stand out in the MLS and is attentive to any call.
