Argentina thrashed Mexico in the last match of the FIFA date and with it removed the undefeated of 11 games won in a row to the team of Gerardo "Tata" Martino. This result caused fans to show their discomfort in social networks in the form of memes.

Before the match, the match looked even. Even "Tata" Martino himself had mentioned that Mexican soccer players were at the level of that of the Argentineans currently, however, the reality was extremely different, because Mexican players couldn't even connect with each other to exert danger in the rival area.
The area that suffered most in this match was the defense, since Carlos Salcedo and Néstor Araujo they were the ones who made the most mistakes, same as Lautaro Martínez He took advantage without mercy. In fact, Salcedo became a trend on Twitter due to the mentions of users to criticize their work.

Another soccer player who also received many unfavorable comments was the goalkeeper of the national team, Guillermo Ochoa, which was recently hired by the Eagles of America and who is constantly in the middle of the debates about whether he is one of the best archers in the history of the Mexican national team.
It should be remembered that this footballer also defended the goal of Mexico during the 7-0 win that Mexico received before Chile in the Bicentennial America Cup, when the team was led by the Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio.
Another point that was criticized about the actions of Mexico it was the fact that Argentina did not present a full headline, because elements like Paulo Dybala since the beginning of the meeting and even Lionel messi It couldn't even be summoned.
In addition, Martino's team was also questioned about a problem that has been constant: Mexico can only demonstrate quality football against the rivals of Concacaf, but not when he plays against opponents of larger wingspan.
