And although the Mexican may have many detractors in Liga MX 2022, it is undeniable that his talent and effort have brought him closer to the greats of world soccer. 

In what record is Guillermo Ochoa about to catch Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo?

According to available data, Guillermo Ochoa is about to reach Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, in the record of being the players with the most World Cups played, each of them with 5 World Cups played.

Thus, the goalkeeper of Club America and the Mexican National Team is about to enter a select club, in which his name will rub shoulders with other legendary players worldwide.

This is because Ochoa has played in the 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018 World Cups, and everything seems to indicate that he will be the goalkeeper chosen by Gerardo Martino to play in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

The other players who make up the prestigious club of players with the most World Cups played are, in addition to Messi and Ronaldo, Lothar Mattäus, Gianluigi Buffon, Rafaél Márquez, and Ricardo "La Tota" Carbajal

And everything seems to indicate that another Mexican will join this club of players who have played in 5 World Cups. 

Who is the other Mexican who could equal Messi and Cristiano as players with the most World Cups played?

The other Mexican would be Andrés Guardado, who has played in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018 World Cups, along with Guillermo Ochoa, and as in the case of the goalkeeper, everything seems to indicate that Guardado will also be with Mexico in Qatar 2022

If this happens, it would mean that the number of Mexicans who have reached this achievement would reach 4, with Carbajal, Márquez, Ochoa, and Guardado.

The Mexican national soccer team, unlike Argentina and Portugal, is not yet assured of a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, although it is virtually already in the tournament.

This is because even if they lose today against El Salvador, El Tri can still qualify for the re-qualification match to fight for the ticket to Qatar 2022.

This process is not strange to the Mexican National Soccer Team, since in 2014, in order to attend the World Cup in Brazil, it had to fight for a ticket in the reclassification, against the New Zealand national team
