Mexico's positive record against Costa Rica in qualifiers

The Mexican national team suffered a defeat to 10-man Jamaican team on matchday 9 of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers. The 2-1 result leaves them in third place with 17 points with only five games left in the round-robin tournament to secure a spot for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Mexico eager to show a better performance

The Mexican national team will return to action on Sunday to host Costa Rica at the Azteca stadium and their coach, Gerardo Martino, remains in the hot seat due to the team’s performances in the last couple of matches. ‘El Tri’ will have to improve and they have the perfect opponent in front of them to show their best level.

Mexico has hosted ‘Los Ticos’ at the Azteca stadium 12 times in the qualifiers. The Mexican national team has dominated the Central American squad with a record of eight wins, three draws and one defeat. It was during the 2002 qualifiers that ‘Los Ticos’ shocked Mexico at the Azteca stadium.

It was on 16 June 2001 that Costa Rica defeated Mexico 2-1 with Rolando Fonseca and Hernán Metford scoring for the visiting side. So they will need another historic performance to obtain the three points on matchday 10 of the World Cup qualifiers in CONCACAF.
