Following his impressive performance for Mexico in their 2022 FIFA World Cup opening match against Poland, fans have taken to social media to show their support for Guillermo Ochoa.
Today (November 22), Mexico took the field for their opening group-stage match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. At Stadium 974 in Qatar, they faced off against Poland to begin their campaign.
El Tri sought to start their campaign on a winning note when they played Poland. Nevertheless, despite having 61% of the possession and four shots on goal for the evening, the game ended 0-0.
It is noteworthy that Poland had a chance to score and secure the three points. After Robert Lewandowski was fouled in the penalty area in the 55th minute of the game, the Eagles were given a penalty.
The Barcelona superstar, however, was unable to take advantage of the circumstance as Ochoa saved his penalty. The Mexican goalkeeper was able to stop the striker’s low right-handed shot.
Thus, Poland lost their opportunity to start their FIFA World Cup campaign on a winning note. Ochoa, on the other hand, once again emerged as Mexico’s leading man after his valor gave the team a point.
