ARLINGTON, Texas - There is a palpable sense of unity and togetherness within the Mexican National Team at the moment.
And their timing couldn't be better.
With the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia now less than three months away, MF Marco Fabian believes that the Mexico squad is on the same page when it comes to their World Cup objectives.
"The confidence level is really high," said Fabian in a press conference on Monday ahead of Mexico's international friendly versus Croatia on Tuesday in Arlington, Texas.
"We're all on the same path, each day understanding more what the coach asks of us both on and off the field, both mental and physical aspects. On the field it's important that each day there is an improvement and that we're focused on the most important thing, which is the World Cup," added Fabian.
El Tricolor are coming off a 3-0 victory over fellow World Cup participants Iceland on Friday in San Jose, California in which Fabian scored the third and final Mexico goal.
Now another challenge awaits on Tuesday against Croatia, who will also be headed to Russia this summer.
It's just the type of match that will further Mexico's preparation for what they hope is a long World Cup run.
