Final Score | Mexico 4-1 Paraguay, International Friendly

Mexico has shown significant improvement under Gerardo Martino's orders, the squad looks comfortable and with a clear play idea. Although they still have a long way to go, the sensations of the Argentine coach process are good after this FIFA Date.

On the other hand the team lacks pressure on the second half, they seemed tired, and out of an idea, perhaps all the moves influenced the mood on the field, but Mexico still needs to work on defense and on keeping the intensity throughout the game.

Paraguay showed a poor game and ended up focusing on fouls and contact as they seemed desperate to take control of a game where they looked completely out of place.
