Mexico won the last game of the group stage, but it was not enough.
He had to thrash Saudi Arabia, but he didn't.
I had to wait for Argentina to thrash Poland, but it didn't happen.
Mexico is a perpetual "but" in World Cups.
El Tri was eliminated from Qatar 2022 on goal difference: tied on points with Poland but scored more goals.
Goodbye to the Mexican dream, goodbye to Tata Martino's World Cup project.
Although goals were missing, humor was not lacking on social networks.
A shower of memes flooded the pages on the internet.
The protagonist was nothing more and nothing less than Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez, who had criticized Messi this week for allegedly kicking the Mexican shirt and who ended up apologizing for his "passion".
