Tata Martino confirmed that he will take three forwards and drop Vela and Chicharito


The choice of Mexicothe Argentinian Gerardo Martinoconfirmed this Tuesday that he will only hire three forwards Qatar World Cup 2022 and removed that again Carlos’ candle Y Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez be part of that list.

“In the case of Carlos’ candleHe told me about three and a half years ago that he would prefer not to be called up for the national team. And, well, that hasn’t changed. In the case of XavierIt’s simple and as I’ve said on all occasions (before) I’ve already decided on the other center forwards,” he assured a press conference.

The Mexican team organized an open day for the media on Tuesday The Angels (USA) before their next two friendlies in the lands of California: this Saturday against Peru in Pasadena (USA) and next Tuesday match Colombia in Saint Clare (USA.).

On a question about the situation of the post of 9 Mexico, Martin admitted that his choice from day one was Raul Jimenezbut pointed out that the injury he is suffering “doesn’t allow him to play continuously.”

“In any case, what gives me satisfaction is that we are not in trouble because of the shortage but instead we have to determine the situation between the four footballers. It is clear that the four will not go (to world)”, he claimed.

“Undoubtedly, if there are four players who later have plenty of reasons to be there, the controversy is who will be left (…). But I always prefer that the problem is abundance and not scarcity,” he added.

Among those called up for these two preparations, those four strikers stand out Martin implicitly referenced without mentioning their names: Henry Martín (America), Santiago Giménez (Feyenoord), Rogelio Funes Mori (Monterrey) and Raúl Jiménez (Wolverhampton).

The technician said that, at this point and with the world nearby, he has “more certainties than doubts” about the names that will make the final call.

But he also admitted that in his decisions he could be “unfair” to someone who deserves to be visited taste

“Within all this, the discussion has developed. I rarely see debates as consistent as these in Mexico about short-term players with good performances who immediately need to be in the national team (…) . It is something that we expose ourselves to. But we hope to have the best 26”, explained.

Despite the poor results and lack of goals in recent games, Martino wanted to refute a certain pessimism that currently surrounds the Mexican team and highlighted that there were good moments in the game in the 0-0 draw against Ecuador and the 0-1 loss against Paraguay.

“I think we’re starting to have glimpses of recovery. What I’m seeing in the days we’ve been in training makes me very excited,” he defended.

“We have to talk about what the team does on the pitch. That will surely bring us closer to the people. It’s not me or a player in a press conference who can fuel people’s illusion. This is fueled by behavior of the team in each of games,” he assured.
