Mexico City /

The formula that gave the Mexican team the gold medal in the London 2012 Olympics is repeating with the Tri who drives Jaime lozano and that from the early morning of July 22 he will begin his walk in Tokyo 2020 against France that has among its squad two old acquaintances of Mexican soccer such as Andre Pierre Gignac Y Floriant Thauvin, both footballers from Tigers.

In 2012 Luis Fernando Tena chose as reinforcements Jesus Crown for the goal, Carlos Salcido in midfield and defense, while Oribe Peralta for the front. Nine years later with Lozano in front of the team reinforced positions are repeated with Guillermo Ochoa, Luis Romo Y Henry Martin.

France, without Mbappé, but with Gignac and Thauvin

The first rival of Tri is one of the candidates to advance to the next round within the Group A, because despite not having a player like Kylian Mbappé, who is today one of the best players in the world, if he has scorers like Gignac Y Thauvin.

The French team has generated many doubts in their country due to the little experience that some of their players have in the maximum circuit, since in the call there are several who play in Ligue 2 in France and only two play in the main clubs in Europe, such as Pembele at PSG and Kalulu at Milan.
