Sergio Aguero warns Argentina about Mexico

Before Argentina’s World Cup match against Mexico in Group C on November 26, Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero advises his team not to overlook El Tri as a ‘dangerous’ opponent.

I think Argentina has a far greater shot at winning, but Mexico still has a shot with those games. Perhaps against Argentina, they will bring their A-game,” he told ESPN.

“This sudden change in strategy is what makes me so wary about Mexico. The Mexicans may struggle to beat a weaker opponent, but when they face strong opposition, they will give it their all.

The ex-Argentina figure continued by stressing Mexico’s lackluster form heading into the international, noting that they had won only two of their past five friendlies. Despitespite of this, he maintains that El Tri’s track record simply serves to fortify them.

Whenever relations with Mexico are strained, the country poses a greater threat.”

La Albiceleste defeated El Tri 3-1 in the 2010 World Cup to move to the quarterfinals. In 2006, Argentina also advanced to the round of 16 by defeating Mexico 2-1.

Mexico, though, promises to make a far more powerful comeback.

We’ve also been putting in time on the defensive end to figure out how to break out of our zone quickly. The results Argentina has been having give them confidence to push further up the field and have more possession of the ball than they did in our 2019 friendly.

El Tri’s first match is against Poland on November 22, and they will also play Argentina and Saudi Arabia in Group C.
