Argentina vs. Mexico: Why it matters

International friendlies are hard to come by these days, with the new UEFA and CONCACAF Nations Leagues getting all of the games since the end of the 2018 World Cup. These two countries will be glad these games don’t count for points because both teams are directionless at the moment without their respective leaders. Lionel Messi has not appeared for Argentina since its round of 16 loss to France in June, and it is unknown whether he will ever play for his country again.

Mexico has lost three of four games since Juan Carlos Osorio retired in July 2018, and Mexico did not play particularly well in any of those games. Now, going down to play a back-to-back in Argentina, Mexico is at the tipping point between a bad few weeks and a full-on crisis. Much of what Mexico did was centered around Osorio’s philosophy of rotating players every week and tinkering with formations. Now is the time for players to lock in their starting roles under interim coach Ricardo Ferretti.
