The technical director of the Mexican national team, Jaime Lozano, offered his statements this Monday at a press conference prior to the match that his team will play against the Uzbekistan team.; In this match El Tri will seek to maintain their good pace of competition and try to achieve a victory in order to be as well prepared for the path that will take them to the 2026 Soccer World Cup.
In his statements he made reference to the great trust that has been imposed on forward Alexis Vega, although he acknowledged that there is important internal competition for the World Cup process due to the number of attackers who wish to be part of the Tri and who have also joined foreign figures such as the Argentine Rogelio Funes Mori and the Colombian Julián Quiñones.
“Alexis is a very mature person, it has been difficult for him to be where he is, you have to help him like everyone else, be close to him, understand him, much of what comes in his career he must understand that it depends on him, inside and outside of court. He is not a common player, not only because of the conditions, he has to take care of himself more than everyone, he was left out of a Gold Cup (due to injury) and there are players pushing hard, direct competition, the case of (Hirving) Lozano is one, Chino (Huerta) who is fashionable today is someone else, and below him is someone else who wants to take over his place, that’s good,” said ‘Jimmy’ Lozano.
“Although he is not at his peak, he was one of those who best reached the previous World Cup, the same in the Olympics, now he is recovering that level, He is someone who has to take good care of himself, physically, especially due to injuries in his short career, he will be better, he has the quality and vision to compete at the highest level,” added the coach.
Finally, the coach of the Mexican team stated that it is important to prioritize each of the aspects of the match just as they did against Australia so as not to be victims of confidence and thus be able to achieve victory.
“Uzbekistan lost to the United States, but there were two goals in the final half, they are good teams, maybe the name is not what you think, but they are good teams. Take this again as a Copa América or World Cup team, and then if we improve we may have a better result. You will see it tomorrow, it is a very well-worked block, they become strong from being together and know how to break, something important is that we have a way to overcome that line of five, it is something that we did not do well against Australia, we gave the option to the rival to be able to reorganize,” he concluded.
