The coach of the Pre-Olympic Tricolor, in the 36th minute, stood in his technical area and with both hands in his pocket, how to look for an explanation of how it works. Sebastián Jurado had saved Mexico from 1-0 and his team could not find a way to harm the attack. Incredulous.
The national team that wants to attend Tokyo 2020 It was a hurricane in the first minutes, but it ended up losing strength before the end of the first half, partly because of the weather and lead sun that fell in the afternoon, but also because of the state of the court that over the course of the minutes was affected.
In the moments that dominated the local set, Paolo Yrizar went from receiving applause to going to rest between boos, after failing the best opportunities for locals.
In the second half, it seemed that the task for Mexico was facilitated, because Japan made four changes of a milestone and among those who left the field was Hiroki Abe, the Japanese midfielder and recently hired by Barcelona. It was not like that, Mexico lost direction and the visitor gained confidence.
Jaime Lozano tried in several ways, left Yrizar on end, then sent him to the band and put Jesus Godinez as the axis of attack. Later, he ended up putting José Juan Macías, the scorer of the Liga MX as the center forward, but nothing worked.
Japan had the last chance to score, failed and made Sebastián Jurado the figure of the match, the only one cheered in the zero draw between the Tricolor Sub 22 and Japan.
