Mexico will face the Netherlands for the first time since their 3-2 victory in 2014, in the same arena they will play this time around

Mexico will play their first game in Europe under Gerardo Martino as they face a tough Dutch side in a friendly on Wednesday 7 October This will be the first UEFA team Martino will face as coach of Mexico in what is expected to be the toughest rival since their friendly against Argentina in 2019, the only game Mexico lost under Martino. The Netherlands will make their debut with their new coach Frank De Boer, who happened to take over from Martino as Atlanta United’s head coach.However, with two Nations League games the next day, the Netherlands are expected to play with an experimental squad as they focus on official tournament matches later in the week

Mexico will return to face the Netherlands in the Johan Cruyff ArenA in Amsterdam Mexico last played against the Dutch team in a friendly at this same stadium where they beat the European team behind two goals by Carlos Vela on his return to the national team Mexico were eliminated by the Dutch at the 2014 World Cup in a game where the led until the last minutes, behind a goal from Wesley Sneijder and a penalty from Klaas Jan Huntelaar who lives in infamy in Mexico with the famous song « No era Penal » starting that day

Mexico are hoping for a comeback by starting with one of the possibly strongest teams they have.Mexico will miss Hirving Lozano, who has had to stay in Naples due to a COVID-19 quarantine for the entire Carlos Rodriguez, who remained in Mexico after testing positive for COVID-19, will also be missed by Carlos Rodriguez, but will have most of his stars, including Jesus Corona and Raul Jimenez While they will miss starting goalie Guillermo Ochoa, they will have Alfredo Talavera, who is most convinced that he has been the best goalkeeper in Mexico this season. Mexico should have a solid roster for the first time since their game against Argentina, a game they lost by a 4-0 score Mexico should learn a lesson as it paid dearly to try to take a stand against a team he thought was weaker than they normally would be, which could be repeated in Amsterdam

Frank de Boer will make his Netherlands coach debut against Mexico, but also said they are unlikely to play the game with the players having actions this weekend and having two tough games League of Nations on October 11 and October 14 (away games against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Italy), the friendly match would be the only one for them on Dutch soil but the least important during this match Break FIFA De Boer faces a difficult situation in which he has to face a tough team like Mexico with a weaker side to ‘save’ for the Nations League, which could open up to defeat That being said, the Netherlands have enough quality in their recall list to give Mexico a tough game, and Mexico have already suffered a terrible result with Martino in a similar situation. Their friendly against Argentina had a squad with a tough squad but lacking top players like Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero which led many fans and the Mexican press to say it was a great opportunity to beat the Argentina because for the first time Mexico would be the top squad This turned out not to be the case, and a very offensive Mexico was opened up with counter attacks and ended up calling 4-0 at half-time in what was Martino’s worst game and Mexico’s only loss as a coach They could also face a hungrier squad with plenty of players who will try to prove they are capable of being in the starting lineup of the Nations League.

Mexico will have a tough game against the Netherlands, but that’s exactly what Mexico is looking for With a 2021 looking to be filled with Concacaf World Cup qualifying and Gold Cup matches , Mexico will struggle to secure quality opposition and even less opportunities to travel to Europe to face the top teams, which fans always complain about Mexico not playing. The game against Argentina was a tough loss but since that game they have only played against Bermuda, Panama and Guatemala, winning every game but not getting tested at all So matches like this will be a plus for Mexico and I hope Gerardo Martino will benefit from it
