Andres Guardado has disclosed that this year’s most awaited World Cup 2018 in Russia could already be his last tournament.
In an interview, the 31-year-old Mexican stated, “It still feels like my first time and it could well be my last. Most importantly, it’s my last chance to be part of a team that goes down in Mexican football history. That’s my biggest motivation.”
This year’s World Cup is going to be Guardado’s fourth time playing in the tournament. His role on the field has evolved, not only in assuming more leadership on the pitch but also in the job he’s expected to fill.
“I used to be more of a box-to-box player, who took people on and got on the end of moves. Now, I’m a central midfielder and hold my position more; I bring balance to the team.
“What’s still the same, though, is my hunger, my drive to win both individually and as a team. That’s what’s kept me at the highest level.”
According to Mexico national club manager Juan Carlos Osorio, Guardado will keep a pivotal role in the summer’s competition (check out the best betting tips).
