Commentator David Faitelson criticized the approach of Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino with which Mexico lost to Argentina in the World Cup.
The performance of the Mexican team has left much to be desired. Not only was this Saturday’s match against Argentina, but he also did not convince everyone with the match he had in his debut against Poland, where he ended up equalizing without goals.
Because of that, David Faitelson, an ESPN analyst and one of the great critics of the Argentine coach, attacked the way in which he has approached the World Cup matches. the Mexican team, having statistically only five shots on goal, but only one of real danger.
“With all due respect, Mexico cannot come to play a World Cup in this way. Today, he stood back, gave control to Argentina and entrusted himself to all the “saints” that exist… And nothing happened, but nothing at all… He was lost as always” wrote the analyst.
“A miserable shot on goal in two games. Four consecutive World Cup games without scoring a goal… That is our football reality, neither more nor less…” he added.

Accuses fear of the ‘Tri’
For the analyst living in the United States, The Mexican team played the team led by Lionel Scaloni with great fear, with a very defensive approach that only worked for him in the first 45 minutes.
“There is a notable difference in the football quality of one and the other… Argentina is much better, but what is being discussed is the Mexican position. To me, he was too cautious and showed fear…” added Faitelson.
