Qatar 2022 Will the 2022 tournament in Qatar be the one where Mexico makes it through the round of 16? It’s a crucial subject for the Tricolor as they compete in another FIFA World Cup. They might now propose a starting XI that maintains the hope of eventually succeeding in the national championship alive. Which Brazilian starting lineup for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022 is ideal? Messi and Ronaldo are two of the 15 most expensive players that might compete in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Getty Without a doubt, Hector Herrera will be one of Mexico’s key performers in Qatar 2022. Every four years, Concacaf aims to advance a team to the FIFA World Cup knockout stages. The squads’ work has not been simple, especially for Mexico. The Tricolor faces significant obstacles to progressing past the round of 16 in this competition, but Qatar 2022 will have an exciting starting XI from the national squad to keep that ambition alive.
Mexico’s coach, Gerardo Martino, has received media attention for a number of years. The squad has suffered some significant defeats to the USMNT, and as a result, they were unable to maintain their lead in the Concacaf Qualifiers. El Tri has not had the greatest of times lately, but each participant’s experience at the FIFA World Cup is very different.
Mexico, which is in Group C, will open the tournament against several formidable opponents. Argentina is likely one of the favorites to win this edition, Poland lately improved, and underestimating Saudi Arabia would be a grave error. It’s all or nothing for some major Mexican players in Qatar 2022 since it might be their last dance.

Which Mexican starting lineup for the FIFA World Cup is the best?

Guillermo Ochoa will undoubtedly compete in his third World Cup as the starting goalkeeper and in his fifth overall. He was a star player who guarded Mexico’s goal in Brazil in 2014 and Russia in 2018, earning praise from all supporters. Now that the 37-year-old is most likely playing in his farewell event, he will put on a show to win as many cleen sheats as he can.
Defenders

The line that causes the most difficulty for Gerardo Martino is this one. Theoretically, Jesus Gallardo will play left back and Jorge Sanchez will play right back (he could change with Gerardo Arteaga). In the middle, Cesar Montes and Johan Vasquez are the fresh blood in the squad, but the coach could go with Nestor Araujo and Hector Moreno as the experienced ones for a World Cup.
Midfielders

In the midfield there are also some doubts, but not a lot. Hector Herrera and Edson Alvarez will be, undoubtedly, in the starting XI, but it is unclear who will accompany them as the attacking midfielder. Carlos Rodriguez and Erick Gutierrez are the mos attractive for Martino, but the first one played the most during the Qualifiers and the synergy with the first mentioned should be decisive for the coach.
Forwards

The last three are the forwards. In the wings, Jesus Corona and Hirving Lozano appear as the best options for Martino. Behind them are Alexis Vega, Marcelo Flores or Diego Lainez, whom are very good changes when the first ones get tired. As for the one in the center, there are still some doubts for the coach. Raul Jimenez and Rogelio Funes Mori are the ones that he likes the most, but the rumor of a possible call for Chicharito Hernandez is still alive as the fans want the living legend to be at Qatar 2022. He is probably living a better moment than the first two mentioned, but his problems with Mexico’s national team have kept him away from the squad lately.
