Martino acknowledges that Mexico's match against the US is a top priority.

Argentina coach Gerardo " Tata " Martino said on Wednesday that the team's focus is on the upcoming match against the United States.

Mexico will face the United States at the Azteca Stadium on Thursday in a crucial match for both sides.

Martino said that the match will be decided by how well the Mexicans perform in the middle of the field, 

and that their mentality is to dominate in this area.

Mexico is coming off three losses to the United States, in the Nations League and Gold Cup finals,

as well as an elimination match on their opponents' turf.

Coo "As the head of the coaching staff and the group's driver, I try to handle what's within my control,

And what people say (on social media) is beyond my control, so I simply have to work," he concluded.

Mexico will finish second in the game and will very certainly qualify for the World Cup, but even if they lose, they will be able to travel directly to Qatar 2022, Sula and El Salvador, in Azteca, on Wednesday the 30th.

Mexico has competed in seven World Cups, reaching the Round of 16 in each, and Martino's ambition is to reach Qatar and qualify for at least the quarter-finals.
