The footballers of the Mexican national team, Raúl Jiménez, César ‘Chino’ Huerta and Jordi Cortizo, received important recognition from the coaching staff and the rest of his teammates after the match played on Saturday against the Australian team in the city of Arlington and prior to the match against the Uzbekistan national team as part of the team’s FIFA double date.
What happens is that the sports director of the National Teams, Duilio Davino, led a small ceremony to reward the members of the Mexican team for having added minutes in the duel against the Oceanic team that ended 2-2 to achieve their 100th game. defending the colors of El Tri (in the case of Raúl Jiménez) and for his debut (in the case of the other two figures)
“This is a gift from your teammates to you, I know that you have earned it and I know that it is difficult to get to the National Team, I hope there will be many more games, take care of your place, that excites them to be better players, that generates more internal competition and that is better for all of us,” said the manager in the middle of a dinner he held with all the players summoned by technical director Jaime Lozano to play in both international matches.
“Raúl, this is a reward for your effort, your quality, but above all your perseverance; 100 games, only 15 have achieved it, there are two here. Congratulations and may there be many more, may you continue writing your story,” added Davino when talking about the 100 games played in El Tri by Jiménez.
Jordi Cortizo and César Huerta were the players who managed to make their debut for the Mexican team in the duel against Australia; The Rayados de Monterrey player entered the field in the 77th minute for Orbelín Pineda, while the UNAM Pumas figure took Alexis Vega’s place in the 60th minute to try to give the team a greater offensive push.
