During a press conference following the match, Martino said his contract had ended following Mexico's elimination.
I'm the first responsible for this great failure and letdown that we have," Martino said. "As the person in command, it had caused a great deal of sadness, I fully assumed responsibility for this event's extremely negative consequences.
Conor Martino was the last player on the field when Florida scored 2-1. After the game, when questioned about what the manager had said in the locker room, Javier Alvarez remained quiet.
He also said that “I am not able to conduct an analysis now, but I already have the data if there is an FM on your own. I will do it since I have plenty of things to say.”
Mexico lost intercontinental competitors the United States on all soccer stages during the period that Martino was the manager.
Martino was strongly examined by media for his decision to exclude record goal scorer Javier Hernandez, aka "Chicharito," from his squad, particularly during the Mexico team's scoring struggles in Qatar.
