Mexico completely dominated Guatemala returning to action for the first time in 2020 with a 3-0 victory at Estadio Azteca Mexico got an early goal and was superior in all respects over a young Guatemalan team who couldn’t face the physically better prepared Mexican squad Mexico had a squad made up of Liga MX players and will now travel to the Netherlands where they will face the home side on October 7 and then have another match on the 13 October against Algeria

The first half started with Mexico playing their first game since November 2019 with (like this last game) a Liga MX side Mexico had several experienced players like Carlos Salcedo, Jesus Gallardo and Luis Rodriguez, as well as young players with already significant experience in the national team such as Uriel Antuna, Cesar Montes, Sebastian Cordova and Carlos Rodriguez The match lasted a few even minutes, but in the dangerous first play Sebastian Cordova made a good pass into the box and found Henry Martin, who caught the ball and shot it past Guatemala goalkeeper Ricardo Jerez. Both players are playing for America, with Estadio Azteca being their home stadium, so they have continued to do what they do regularly

Guatemala tried to respond and got a corner kick but it was cleared by the Mexican defense Mexico had another chance when there was a mistake from the Guatemalan defense but Jerez was able to eliminate it , in a play the TV broadcast couldn’t show due to reruns Later, Mexico moved closer when a large Cordova cross was led by Martin up close, but Jerez made a great save and was then able to clear him before Cesar Montes came to take the lead in the rebound Mexico continued to fully control possession although Guatemala did a good job in the final third to prevent them from creating dangerous chances After a good few minutes from Guatemala, Mexico took advantage of a good run from Uriel Antuna, who passed his defender and gave a nice pass to Orbelin Pineda Pineda took the single shot and placed it ahead of Jerez for the 2-0

Guatemala had their first good against when a bad pass from Pineda gave them a four on two, but a bad pass in the final third ended the game when the Mexican defender was able to return Mexico had another great opportunity when a mistake by a Guatemalan defender allowed Jesus Gallardo to run into the box and pass to Cordova, who got a left-footed shot past Jerez for the 3 -0 Mexico came close when Cordova passed a Guatemalan defender nearly deflected into the net, but Jerez managed to reach it In the dying minutes of the first half Gallardo made a cross which Carlos Rodriguez tried to lead but went wide The referee blew his whistle and Mexico took the lead after a very good performance

The second half started with Guatemala replacing Marco Dominguez with Rudy Barrientos Mexico made no substitutions Mexico had their first chance when Antuna finished with a defender who handed over the ball at the feet of Henry Martin, but Jerez managed to get the ball back Minutes later, a cross from Antuna was almost deflected in a goal, but Jerez made a big save Guatemala replaced Steven Robles and Jesus Lopez for Eduardo Soto and Jairo Arreola Mexico took its first steps by replacing Uriel Antuna, Luis Rodriguez and Jesus Gallardo for Roberto Alvarado, Jorge Sanchez and Miguel Layun

A few minutes after the substitution, Mexico looked like they had a good chance, but Pineda’s shot went wide After a few minutes where Mexico lowered its level, Mexico had a chance when a few games in the zone came to an end. ended with a shot from Roberto Alvarado that went over the net Mexico replaced Henry Martin and Sebatian Cordova for Alexis Vega and Fernando Beltran Mexico tried to move forward but did not do as well as in the first half Guatemala replaced Cristopher Ramirez for Alejandro Galindo , as he hoped to take advantage of Mexico’s slowdown Guatemala had to eliminate Luis Martinez for an injury to Jorge Vargas Mexico replaced Cesar Montes for Gilberto Sepulveda Mexico continued to have full control of the game as Guatemala continued to sit and block in vain Mexico seemed to have a penalty when Alvarado was knocked down, but the referee gave it as a free kick just outside the box It looked like Miguel Layun was injured but he was able to stay in the game Mexico controlled the final minutes before the referee blew the whistle to give Mexico a solid easy win

Mexico put in a great performance in what was essentially a training match Guatemala was the last minute substitute for Costa Rica, who would play the match before having to cancel due to COVID-mandated quarantines that the Costa Rican players should have suffered on their return to Costa Rica for Mexico Guatemala were a lively team but they were too inferior and couldn’t keep up with Mexico’s speed and superior physicality at all Guatemala didn’t have a single dangerous opportunity during the entire game and Mexican goalkeeper Hugo Gonzalez, was a spectator Mexico will have few complaints about the game One of them will be how the team slowed down in the second half and it could be worrying that none of the second half substitutes made an impact on the match Also apart from that, Mexico were totally dominant and will now look to a totally different level of difficulty in Europe with a squad that will be mostly made up of their players based in Europe.
