Is Mexican team has been marked by General pessimism towards the World Cup Thinking not only about the long-awaited fifth game, it is even doubted that it will advance from the Group Phase, something that has been achieved uninterruptedly since the edition of USA 94, but the extensive experience of William Ochoa tells you that this perception is not new.

Looking ahead to the friendly matches against Peru this Saturday the 24th and Colombia on Tuesday the 27th in the United States, the Tricolor goalkeeper -who is in his fifth World Cup as called- recalled that the previous jousts have been reached in all possible ways and that many times they have been taken for granted from the first phasebut they have always overcome that first obstacle.

The role that we must assume is the one we have had in all the World Cups. Without believing ourselves too much, without seeing ourselves too much for what we are to this day, we are a team that has always had difficult draws and groups and we have been able to overcome them, “she mentioned.

The role of Mexico in Qatar 2022

“Now Mexico has to be the surprise. We are not favorites neither in our group nor to win the World Cup. So, from there, we have to be honest and say that Mexico has to come and surprisering the bell, be the black horse and go as far as we have to go,” he said.
