The superiority of Mexico was seen not only by the expulsion of Maynor Figueroa, but also in the occasions generated in the rival goal
Mexico they beat Honduras 3-0 and put the ground in between with the rest of the teams to take the leadership of the Octagonal of the Concacaf. With the three points, the Tricolor reached 11 units and remains undefeated towards Qatar 2022.
Between the technical superiority line by line, the good possession of the ball and an expulsion of the Hondurans, Gerardo Martino’s team continues with a firm step to be the boss of the area.
Then in ESPN Digital We present you the reasons for the victory of Mexico.
Catracha expulsion conditioned the visit
Maynor Figueroa was sent off for an iron on Raúl Jiménez. The Honduran captain and benchmark of the Central American team left his team at a numerical disadvantage and that was key for the game to open, much more, in favor of Mexico.
Although the Tricolor was already up on the scoreboard by a goal, with one more man, they dared more to go on the attack, look for hands to hands on the wings and feed the forwards with balls. In the end, two more goals echoed the expulsion of the Honduran captain.
Lack of forcefulness
If they were not five goals, or more, it was because some elements failed in the zone of definition; however, the win was consummated due to the good placement of the Mexican players.
Hirving Lozano and Rogelio Funes Mori were able to go away with a double, but they failed in their aim. Raúl Jiménez or Edson Álvarez could leave with a goal, but, like their teammates, they did not have the best aim.
Line by line superiority
Individually and line by line, Mexico Is superior. That was reflected in the heads up and in the system that Martino sent to the court with his traditional 4-3-3. In addition, the adjustments with certain changes of elements were for the better and that had repercussions to overcome the Hondurans.
