Ahead of the match with Jamaica in the World Cup qualifying campaign, the Mexican national team manager Jose de la Torre stressed the importance of getting three points more than the style of football.

Mexico come into the match on the back of a draw with Denmark friendly match. Despite this, the team has been on good run of form. De la Torre has said that Mexico will not earn any points for playing beautiful attractive football. Instead, they should focus on improving their unbeaten run, which now stretches to 5 matches in all competitions.

Since suffering the 1-0 defeat at the hands of United States back in August, Mexico have gone on a run of matches that has seen them win against the likes of El Salvador and Costa Rica in important World Cup qualifying matches. The match against Jamaica will be at home, which gives Mexico the opportunity to extend the lead even further. The manager has called for the team to keep it simple and efficient. He has also requested his players not to be complacent the match. Complacency was one of the main problems for Mexico over the last few years, but de la Torre has been able to eradicate that from the team.

“I don’t play against victims, I play against opponents. It’s different, so it depends how we look at it. Our objective is to begin the Hexagonal on the right foot. I’m not obligated to do anything in particular. We have a commitment to do things well, which is different. The object is obviously to qualify, and tomorrow, to win. We have the abilities to do it. But sometimes the rival also figures in, and you can’t play as spectacularly as the people might like. It’s very simple, we have to be efficient. That’s the way you get things done,” said de la Torre.
