Mexico suffers and draws against Jamaica in the Nations League

The collective performance of the Mexican National Team continues to generate doubts about its performances prior to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Inoperative offense

In their match against Jamaicathe team coached by the Argentinean Gerardo “Tata” Martino had to come back from an opposing score and, suffering, ended up tying 1-1 in matchday 3 of the Nations League.

At the beginning of the match, the Caribbean team took advantage of an oversight by Jess Gallardo in the marking and at the fourth minute took a 1-0 lead through a header by Leon Bailey, on a pass from Shamar Nicholson.

From that point on, Jamaica was better positioned on the pitch of the National Stadium in Kingston against an uncoordinated opponent that lacked the ideas to go forward.

Perhaps the most important thing for Mexico City were the set pieces they were able to generate, as they managed to even the score at 1-1 in the 48th minute of action.

From a free kick, Luis Chvez slipped the ball to Luis Romo, who headed the ball past goalkeeper Andre Blake.

Torrential rain

In the second half, the team coached by Paul Hall came close to taking the lead again after a bad save by goalkeeper Rodolfo Cota. The ball was left to striker Nicholson who shot towards goal, but Luis Romo and Kevin Alvarez were able to clear the ball in an agonizing manner.

As for Mexico, they could generate little danger due to the lack of connection between their midfielders and strikers.

Another determining factor in the result was the heavy rain that prevailed in Kingston.

With this result, Jamaica consolidated its position as leader of Group A with five points, one more than Mexico.
