This week the Olympic Games begin in Japan, games marked by the pandemic and without fans in the stands.
And although soccer is the least important in this event, the Mexican National Team is about to make its debut.
For us, Thursday morning will be the premiere against the powerful France, one of the candidates to win the gold. The Gauls have put together a great team and have had very good preparation. Their last match was against South Korea and they won with a great performance from Gignac.
Lozano’s team, which has already been installed in the Olympic Village for several days, could only play against a Japanese Second Division team that they easily beat. Mexico would jump onto the court with Ochoa in goal. Sánchez, Montes, Vázquez and Aguirre. In midfield, Romo, Rodríguez and Córdova, leaving Vega, Lainez and Henry Martín in front.
It is very important to make it clear that our country is not a favorite and that there are teams that have many better players. All this so as not to create false expectations and then disappoint us.
The team must first skip the first round, where both France and Japan are favorites.
Jaime Lozano is a great coach and a better person. He has really prepared himself since he retired as a professional footballer and this tournament may mark his future. I wish him all the success in the world and that he have the ability to gradually clear obstacles in the Olympic Games.
There is quality, it is a generation where everyone is a starter in the First Division and several with conditions to make the leap to Europe.
For example, these days the negotiation between PSV and Monterrey began for the services of César Montes.
Being in the Olympics is a wonderful opportunity, they have to take advantage of it and leave their soul on the field. They are moments that are lived only once in life. Spain, Brazil, France and Argentina are the big favorites of the tournament. I hope that Mexico breaks the pools and gets something that surprises the world.
We will be very aware and all true football fans, to get up early, to see the Olympian in Japan. The time has come and it is time to achieve something historic and unforgettable.
