Germany turned out to be not only a hierarchy synod, but also an ego booster for the Mexican National Team. The recent draw against the German team in a friendly duel would have caused such a strong emotional boost that within El Tri they fell into excess of confidence and the price was the defeat against Honduras in the first leg of the quarterfinals in the Concacaf Nations League.
DON'T MISS: The day Honduras gave the Mexican National Team an 'Aztecazo'
Personally we try to give our best in each game regardless of the opponent and that failed us against Honduras, I don't know if it was overconfidence, but we believed it after Germany and they gave us a blow of authority, we must be humble and know that every game and training session is important. We know that there are more complicated games than others but we must come out with the same determination in all of them,” said Santiago Giménez in the press conference prior to LNC's second leg against the Catracho team.
Mexico refuses to make that same mistake at home. The Azteca Stadium field will have to witness the victory, where the team will seek to turn the series around to get a direct ticket to the Copa América, and to do so, there must be a notable change in attitude and mentality.
I agree with Edson, there was a lack of attitude, that's what history dictates, as I said before, you learn from mistakes and we have to continue holding on to that friction because it is very difficult to play and what has to be put first tomorrow is the attitude and from there they will come out. things".
This will be Santiago Giménez's first game as a national team at the Coloso de Santa Úrsula, a building that, according to the Feyenoord forward, should weigh heavily on the Hondurans and where he hopes to break the goal drought that has complained about him in the last weeks.
Santiago Giménez recognized that that penalty charged at Panenka, and that he missed against RKC Waalwijk, recent history could have changed him.
We as forwards must be prepared for those negative streaks, I had to score many consecutive games, now it is the other way around. You have to work, continue having faith, I made a big mistake with the penalty that I took that way because I could have regained confidence, but the only thing is to win as a team and then try to score it anyway because in the end that is what is going to win you to have confidence again.”
