Mexico’s football team, El Tri, will face off against Suriname in their Nations League match on March 23rd. To move ahead in the standings, they need to win against Suriname and Jamaica in this international window. According to reports, although Suriname is hosting the match, they are unlikely to win against Mexico. The country has not won a match since September 2022 and their last win in the Nations League was against the Cayman Islands in September 2019.
The match with Suriname and Jamaica during this international window is critical for Mexico’s place in the upcoming Copa America. A win in both matches will allow them to face competitive challenges ahead of being co-hosts of the 2026 World Cup. Under their new coach, Diego Cocca, a new era is underway for El Tri, and he will have a deep 34-player roster to evaluate during these matches.
Despite Mexico’s struggling attack, their strong defense remains, and they have strength in depth in their team to reclaim their first place in the group. Henry Martin, a forward, has been called to the team to help fix Mexico’s scoring issues. With Hector Herrera, they are confident in making it through these matches.
The match may not be viewed as top-level competition, but it will be a good evaluation opportunity for new players on the Mexican National Team. Football fans can watch the match live on Paramount+, with odds in favor of Mexico. The betting odds currently sit with Mexico returning to win the match, but the game’s results are yet to be seen.
