The runner Andrea Romero and the catcher Ana Barbosa put definitive numbers to sign a liberating victory.
Quarterback María Cruz signed an outstanding performance by completing 20 of her 34 passes for a total of 190 yards and four touchdowns, while Ana Barbosa had five receptions for 73 yards and two touchdowns.
Unfortunately, Mexico will no longer be able to fight for the first places after arriving late at the World championship and lose by default to the Britain. The national team will play next Sunday the duel for fifth place.
It should be remembered that the Mexican team had a lot of trouble getting to Finland. According to the above, despite being told that they already had the tickets, the lack of payment made the journey a viacrucis.
Mexico had to travel in groups to the venue and did so with the sadness of not being able to fight for the podium. In the 2017 World Cupthe tricolors took the bronze medal, for this edition the illusion was great, but the mismanagement of resources took them away.
