Mexico odds to win World Cup 2022: Confirmed squad, route to the final, ranking & form
Mexico will be making their eighth consecutive World Cup finals appearance in Qatar.
Although they aren’t often recognised among the top footballing nations, Mexico have only failed to show at a World Cup on five occasions. El Tri have also reached the last 16 of the World Cup in each of their past seven appearances in the competition.
Mexico secured their spot in Qatar by finishing second in the CONCACAF third round table with eight wins from their 14 qualification matches, alongside four draws and just two defats.

Odds correct at time of writing
Mexico have been placed within an interesting group but they may fancy their chances of making it through to the last 16. The main problem is who they could face when they get there. Unless they win Group C — which is unlikely given Argentina stand in their way — or the World Cup curse strikes again, Mexico may struggle to go further than the last 16 as their most likely opponents would be France.

Who could Mexico meet in the knockout rounds?
If Mexico were to win Group C, they would face the runners-up of Group D, which consists of France, Australia, Denmark and Tunisia, in Al Rayyan on 3rd December. France are favourites to win Group D with Denmark tipped to finish second. If El Tri get through that, it’s still a tough run to the World Cup final with the likes of Netherlands, England, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Portugal and Uruguay all potentially to come.

|Round of 16||Denmark|
Things will be tougher, if Mexico finish second. France would be the likely round of 16 opponent instead of Denmark before the likes of England, Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Portugal and Brazil come into the picture.

Mexico players to watch at this year’s World Cup 2022
Mexico top World Cup Golden Boot contender – Raul Jimenez
Raul Jimenez finished as Mexico’s leading scorer in their WCQ campaign. The marksman has to date managed 29 goals across 96 international appearances. However, he will come into the World Cup cold, having not featured for Wolves since the end of August due to injury.
Mexico player to watch – Edson Alvarez
Having joined Ajax as Matthijs de Ligt’s successor the versatile Edson Alvarez has evolved into a supremely gifted holding midfielder. He’s been the glue that holds the Amsterdammers together, bringing the ball from deep and linking up with their roaming forwards, he’s expected to play a similar role for his national team as they seek to go deep in Qatar.
Mexico tactical analysis & likely formation at the World Cup
It comes as no surprise to find that Gerardo Martino, a disciple of Marcelo Bielsa, is a 4-3-3 practitioner. It’s been the most commonly used system he’s used since taking charge of Mexico in March 2019, from where he began with a 11-game winning streak, however indifferent results of late has thrown up the makeup of his starting lineup up in the air. That being said Mexico’s spine — Guillermo Ochoa, Héctor Moreno, Edson Alvarez and Hirving Lozano — is as impressive as any side in Qatar this winter.
