Raúl Jimenez arrives in Mexico ahead of World Cup qualifiers
The striker from Wolverhampton was one of the first players to report to camp in Mexico ahead of the final batch of World Cup qualifiers.
The Mexico national team will try to secure a spot in the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar in the last batch of the round-robin tournament in CONCACAF next week. The team managed by Gerardo Martino has been struggling lately in the World Cup qualifiers and they sit in third place with 21 points.
Mexico will start the final batch of the qualifiers by hosting the United States at the Azteca stadium and a win will put them on the verge to secure a spot in Qatar. One of the first players to report to camp for ‘El Tri’ was Raúl Jiménez, who received a red card on Friday in Wolverhampton’s 3-2 against Leeds United.
Mexico needs support
“We need the support from our fans,” said Raúl Jiménez when he was asked about what Mexico needs to beat the United States. ‘El Tri’ has never lost against the USMNT in Mexico in the World Cup qualifiers so they feel confident they can walk out with the three points.
After hosting the United States, Mexico will go on the road to play against Honduras on 27 March and three days later they end the round-robin tournament hosting El Salvador.
