Until now the origin of the lawsuit is unknown, but this incident marks the tension that will exist ahead of the game that will be played next Saturday at the Lusail Stadium, in which both Mexico and Argentina need a victory to keep their aspirations alive. qualify for the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
