Argentina Match Against Mexico Is Like A Final – Martinez



Argentina Match Against Mexico Is Like A Final – Martinez

Argentina forward Lautaro Martinez says his side’s second World Cup group match against Mexico will be “like a final” after they lost their opener to Saudi Arabia.

Two-time winners Argentina sit bottom of Group C.

Anything other than a victory against Mexico could leave their hopes of qualifying for the last 16 hanging by a thread.

“It could define our faith in this World Cup,” said Martinez.

Lionel Messi opened the scoring from the penalty spot but Saudi Arabia came from behind after Argentina had three goals ruled out for offside.

“It was a heavy blow to our morale, but we are a strong group that is very united,” said Martinez.

“We need to stay calm, recover and think about what’s coming. What’s coming is Mexico, so we have to focus on getting the win no matter what.

“We are very optimistic and I think we lost because of small details, due to our own mistakes. We have studied our next rival and I think we are ready.”
