Peralta: Russia 2018 Will Be a Good Opportunity to Take Leap Forward

MEXICO CITY – Mexican forward Oribe Peralta said on Thursday that the next edition of the World Cup in Russia in 2018 will be a good opportunity for his team to take a leap forward and progress to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1986.

Peralta, who was part of the team in the 2014 Brazil’s World Cup, and has been a regular in the national team in recent years, told the media at the launch of the jersey that the national team will sport at the 2018 event.

“Given the quality of the team and the belief that all the players have, it is time to take that leap forward,” Peralta said.

“We need to show what Mexico really is and be mentally strong enough to beat whoever the opponent is,” he added.

In the last six editions of the World Cup, Mexico has exited the tournament at the round of 16.

Peralta also said that the matches during the next FIFA international window – played on Nov. 10 and 13 in Europe against Belgium and Poland, respectively – will be a good opportunity to judge the ability of the Mexican team.

Team members Rodolfo Cota, Oswaldo Alanis, Orbelin Pineda and Edson Alvarez also attended the promotional event, along with the team’s manager, the Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio.
