Dos Santos Siblings And Injuries Doubts Make Mexico Squad For USA Clash
Mexico has released its roster to have an March. 10 playoff using the U . s . States.
The match, pitting the 2015 Gold Cup champion against that tournament’s 2013 champion, will choose which team earns CONCACAF’s place within the 2017 Confederations Cup.
After missing September friendly matches against Trinidad and Tobago and Argentina, Giovani dos Santos from the LA Universe and the brother Villarreal’s Jonathan dos Santos go back to the fold. Malaga goalie Guillermo Ochoa also missed individuals matches, but despite being named towards the provisional roster doesn’t come in the ultimate call.
Their email list released through the Mexican federation on social networking reports interim El Tri manager Ricardo ‘Tuca” Ferretti has known as 25 players, with questions lingering concerning the status of Andres Guardado, who hurt his ankle inside a Champions League match in mid-September, and Rafa Marquez, who’d an adductor problem which has stored him from club action. It’s not obvious if Mexico posted 25 names to CONCACAF, using the roster limit limited to 23 names.
One of the names are four players in the club side Ferretti manages, Tigres, and three players each from Portugese side Porto and reigning CONCACAF Champions League champion Cub America.
