‘Chucky’ Lozano failed to perform a ‘chalaca’ and kicked Lisandro Martínez in the face

The Mexican team tries to break parity in the match against Argentina, on the second date of Group C of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but it has not been very clear. Precisely, Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano was the protagonist of a failed attempt: he made a ‘chalaca’, although he did not calculate well and kicked Lisandro Martínez in the face.

The duel on the pitch at the Lusail Iconic Stadium takes place with a lot of tension and the little collective effectiveness makes the players bet on individual actions. Under this context, the ‘Tri’ could not cause much damage in the goal of Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martínez, which is why coach Gerardo Martino looked worried.

The pressure was increasing and Hirving Lozano opted to perform an acrobatic maneuver: the ball was in the air and he performed a ‘chalaca’. The decision seemed to be the right one, but ‘Chucky’ missed the mark and hit Lisandro Martínez squarely in the face, who had intervened with a header.

The defender of the Argentina team was very sore and fell on top of his opponent, who quickly apologized. The Italian referee Daniele Orsato only sanctioned the scene as a dangerous move and did not punish with a yellow card.
