Mexico leave WC despite stunner by Chávez

Mexico bow out of the FIFA World Cup in style thanks to Chávez's stunner

November 30, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The holding midfielder scored his first World Cup goal with a precise free kick. Unfortunately, that was not enough to see El Tri through.

Last week, we enjoyed Richarlison's golazo and immediately held it as the candidate to be crowned as goal of the tournament. Today, we saw one worthy contender to the title.

Mexico needed to win by three goals -at least- to make it to the next round of the World Cup, and while they went goalless during the first half against Saudi Arabia, they managed to score twice in less than 10 minutes of the second 45 minutes.

Their second goal came via a stunning free kick by Luis Chávez, a holding midfielder who opened up his goalscoring account in a FIFA World Cup with this impressive left-footed shot. Have a look at his golazo here (Image might be geo-restricted).

Unfortunately for El Tri, this effort was not enough to see them through, as their poor performance against Argentina and a late goal by Salem Al-Dawsari eliminated them from the tournament.

This is the first time since 1978 in which El Tri will not be around to play the KO stages, as they had done in 1986, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018. Mexico now share the record for most group stage eliminations with Scotland and South Korea, all three teams with eight early exits.
