Marco Fabián, current Mazatlán FC striker, hopes that the Mexican national team will not miss Javier Hernández, since the Tricolor's all-time leading scorer has not been considered by Gerardo Martino since September 2019.

It was Miguel Herrera who proposed himself to coach the Mexican national team because of Martino's problems?

"I believe and hope I'm not wrong, but then maybe we will ask ourselves in a few years if it was the best decision or if we will regret not having been able to use one of our best players at a time when it was still possible”.

“Just the name alone of having our top scorer on the national team, being in a good moment I think he can easily compete. I think he can make any defense nervous just by being there”, former Chivas and Cruz Azul player Marco Fabián told ESPN.

Marco Fabián asks for a chance for Chicharito

Marco Fabián asked that 'Chicharito' at least have the opportunity to compete with the current strikers of the Mexican national team since the LA Galaxy striker is in good shape to defend the Tricolor jersey.

"Just as Raul is also in a great moment and they are in elite soccer and doing important things and there is 'Tecate', there is 'Chucky', there is Funes Mori and Santi, I think everyone can compete healthily for a position, but at least they can compete. 

I think that the things that are happening outside the field, the reason why he can't be there, I think it affects all of us. It affects our country, our national team and in the end, one of the best players in our country is being left out at a time when he could still play".

Mazatlan player believes the national team can do better

Fabián asked the fans to forget the ways in which Mexico achieved its qualification to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, although he knows that the demands on the Tricolor will always be the highest in these instances.

“We want to see the best version of the national team, we want to see a national team that qualifies, that scores and plays well”.

"I think that today, as a help, the only thing I could say is that we should forget about what happened. Today we achieved the most important thing, which was to be in the World Cup, in the most beautiful thing in soccer, and let those who participate go and let them be at their best moment and represent our country; let them forget about everything, about how they got there” 

“In this case, if it is 'Tata', whoever it is, we must support 100%, leave all the bad vibes or doubts aside, in the end, we are all in the same boat".

For the World Cup participant in Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018, it is a positive thing that Mexico faces stronger opponents since the national team always grows against teams of a higher hierarchy.
