Mexico travel to the city of Brøndby as they take on Denmark in their last tune-up game ahead of the World Cup.
Here we go. One last game remains. While a lot of the narrative surrounding the Mexico national team in recent days has been from off the field issues, the fact remains, there is a World Cup to be played. In a little bit more than week, Mexico will take the field in Moscow, Russia to take on defending World Cup champs Germany.
For Juan Carlos Osorio, this game against Denmark is especially important. This is his last chance to get a full glimpse of his 23-man roster, including those that have been struggling with injuries. Andres Guardado, Hector Moreno and Diego Reyes have all been having trouble getting back to fitness, with the latter being a doubt as recently as a few days ago.
There is also, of course, the fact that Denmark won’t be a walk in the park. They are also in the World Cup, and if anything, at least physically they are the closest Mexico will face to a team similar to Sweden. Although Mexico are by no means obligated to win, Mexico will not want any added pressure before June 17.
In summary, this game will be a real test, not just for Juan Carlos Osorio but the players looking to arrive to at 100%. It is time for them to leave all the distractions aside and focus solely on what is coming ahead.
