The Gold Cup begins this weekend, where Mexico will start their adventure with firm hopes of maintaining and emulating one of the most recent successes for them in a national team tournament. Mexico and Trinidad and Tobago will face off at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, this Saturday, July 10, 2021.
Those led by Tata Martino share this group also with El Salvador and Curaçao.
How do Mexico and Trinidad & Tobago arrive?
Trinidad and Tobago arrive at this Gold Cup after a long-suffering qualifying match played on July 6 against the French Guiana team. They drew 1-1 in regulation time and won 8- on penalties. 7. So they earned the right to participate in this Gold Cup and occupy this Group A, in which they debut against the current champions Mexico.
Trinidad, or as they call themselves, The Soca Warriors, are currently experiencing a challenging football situation. Their primary objective during this Gold Cup is to play a perfect game to increase both their confidence and those of their fans.

For its part, the current champion and favorite to win this Gold Cup, Mexico, comes to this tournament to revalidate the title obtained in the last edition. Those led by Tata Martino trust that, in this tournament, they will not lose again as in the previous final played against the United States, in which they were the favorites and were defeated. Although Mexico will not have two of its important figures in this tournament, such as Guillermo “Memo” Ochoa and Andres Guardado, one called up for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games. The other due to injury has the newly naturalized Rogelio Funes Mori, who already knows what it is to score with the TRI after his excellent debut against Nigeria.
Mexico comes from defeating and crushing the Nigerian team with 4-0 in the last friendly match to prepare for this 2021 Gold Cup.
