‘Tata' has reconsidered the call-up of the Mexican youth player who is part of Arsenal of England and, according to reports, he will call him to play a friendly match against Guatemala on April 27 in the United States. This would be Flores' second call-up to the senior national team.

The 18-year-old talent, who plays for Arsenal in the Premier League, is still debating whether he should represent Mexico or go with Canada, a team that has already made a decision on the possibility of taking him to Qatar 2022; the player has already 'made up his mind'.

Marcelo Flores 'chooses' between Mexico and Canada

After the draw where the groups were defined, different Mexican players reacted to the Aztec team, and one of the messages that stood out the most was that of Marcelo Flores.

The youth soccer player posted a storie on Instagram that may not seem like a big deal to many, but it is significant, as it shows Group C, where Mexico is, and which will be his path to the title of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Marcelo Flores experienced his first call-up to the Arsenal first team, although he could not make his debut in the Premier League. The "curious" thing is that the broadcasting of the league left the young player without nationality.

Flores has two nationalities, Mexican and Canadian. The striker has shown his preference to represent the Aztec national team but has not closed the door to the Maple Leafs, taking into account that he has not been called up for an official match.

It is worth mentioning that, in order for a player with more than one nationality to be able to definitively choose the national team he will defend, he must receive minutes in three type-A senior national team matches, that is, official tournaments or dates established by FIFA for playing matches.
