The Mexican soccer team completed its preparation for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup on Wednesday with a 1-2 defeat against Sweden, at the Montilivi Municipal Stadium, in Girona, Spain.
El Tri started more incisive in their attempts, and in less than 10 minutes they had already generated their first chances, with shots from Alexis Vega and Luis Chávez, who found goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt well placed. The tonic continued and very close to finishing the first part, Uriel Antuna sent a left-footed shot directly to the crossbar. The 0-0 remained on the board.
The first minutes of the complement were a rise and fall for Gerardo Martino’s squad.
At minute 53, fortune smiled on Sweden again, after a shot by Jorge Sánchez deflected off Chávez and the ball crashed into the vertical.
Immediately afterwards, Mattias Svanberg broke away down the left sector and crossed an accurate cross for Marcus Rohdén to push the ball into the back of the net.
At minute 60, parity arrived, after an excellent pass between the lines from Héctor Herrera to Alexis Vega, who entered the area and, with subtlety, defined with a low shot close to the far post.
With this goal, the Chivas de Guadalajara player reached three consecutive duels drilling the nets with his team.
The clock kept getting closer to the end of the commitment, but, in fraction 86, the European team executed a corner kick that left the ball served to Svanberg, and he unleashed an impeccable forehand to tip the scales and give the led team the victory By Jan Olof Andersson.
