The 2022 FIFA World Cup will begin in Qatar on November 20 as 32 of the best football nations in the world gather in the Middle East to see who comes out on top later this year. Mexico will be one of those countries as they try to cause a few upsets on the road to the final which will take place at the Lusail Stadium on December 18.
Ahead of the start of the prestigious tournament, let’s take a look at how well Mexico has performed in past World Cups.
When Did Mexico First Win The World Cup?
Mexico is yet to win a World Cup but has reached the quarterfinal stage twice in its history (1970, 1986). They have also qualified for the Round of 16 phases on each of their past seven World Cup appearances and will look to do the same when the 2022 version of the competition kicks off in Qatar next month.
Mexico head coach Gerardo Martino will hope to do the impossible by winning the whole tournament with his current squad later this year.
How Many Times Has Mexico Won the World Cup?
As mentioned earlier, Mexico is still waiting for its first World Cup trophy. However, they have made it through to the quarterfinals twice before which could give them some hope ahead of this World Cup.
Despite their past shortcomings, Mexico remains one of the most experienced nations in FIFA World Cup football and would try its best to cause an upset or two in Qatar. They might even dare to go a step further by reaching the semi-finals of the famous competition for the first time in their history.
Schedule of Mexico For World Cup 2022
Mexico will begin their World Cup campaign against Poland at Stadium 974 on November 22 before locking horns with the Argentina football team in what is set to be an exciting clash at the Lusail Iconic Stadium just four days later. The Mexicans will play their final group game versus Saudi Arabia on November 30 at the Lusail Iconic Stadium once again.
Gerardo Martino’s team would be reliant on some of their experienced players like Guillermo Ochoa and Hirving Lozano to make a difference in this year’s World Cup. They would do well to get out of their group but reaching the final might be an improbable dream for them.
