Mexico vs Ecuador 2024 New Updates

Mexico vs Ecuador 2024 New Updates Mexico knew they needed a win to advance to the Copa America knockout stage, but they could only muster an egg in Glendale, exiting at the group stage of a second straight major tournament after a 0-0 draw with Ecuador. El Tri showed plenty of attacking intent throughout the match, but were not able to expose Ecuador’s strong defensive solidity. The South American side showed a moderate threat on the counter-attack, which needed to be respected, but Mexico had the upper hand for most of the game.

The draw put Mexico in third place in Group B behind Ecuador and Venezuela. And it marked the start of a long summer of questions about this generation of Mexican players, the system that produced them, and whether head coach Jaime Lozano is the right man to lead them to the 2026 World Cup. On Sunday, they started with energy and intensity, with the desire of proud players eager to lift their football-loving nation up – but were not able to do so. They moved quickly into tackles and got into 50-50 duels. They occasionally won the ball high up the field, and excited the crowd in Arizona – but even when they did, they rarely created any clear-cut chances.

While their seed was deceptive, on paper they were the second-best team in CONCACAF, they are in the midst of a long-overdue rebuild. Lozano, apparently with greater job security than some predecessors, left several key players off his 26-man roster for the tournament, including Hirving “Chucky” Lozano and Raul Jimenez. The idea was to incorporate unexpected homegrown stars blocked on the depth chart by national team veterans, but who could potentially contribute in 2026.

Ecuador secured a scoreless draw to qualify for the quarter-finals based on goal difference, leaving Mexico out! El Tri gave it their all in the hope of scoring a dramatic winner, but failed to create anything that troubled Alexander Dominguez. It is a disappointing result for Mexico despite a soft draw at the Copa America, and they rue their lack of offensive venom and plethora of missed chances.
