Alejandro Zendejas and Marcelo Flores head El Tri's roster for the preparation match of Mexican National Team vs Guatemala, which will take place in the United States.
More news about mexican national team:
The match will take place next Wednesday, April 27 at 20:00 ET, and 19:00 CT and Gerardo Martino will try to give an opportunity to new talents in order to integrate more elements into the Mexican squad.
It is not in vain that "Tata" has been seen in several Liga MX 2022 matches with his team, with whom he is evaluating the Mexican players available to continue reinforcing various areas of the Mexican National Team.
The list of called-up players for the match against Guatemala
Goalkeepers: Carlos Acevedo and David Ochoa
Defenders: Erick Aguirre, Kevin Álvarez, Jesús Angulo, Jonathan Gómez, Luis Olivas, Arturo Ortiz, Israel Reyes
Midfielders: Fernando Beltrán, Luis Chávez, Erick Sánchez, Erik Lira, Roberto Alvarado, Sebastián Córdova, Marcelo Flores
Forwards: Alejandro Zendejas, Santiago Giménez and Eduardo Aguirre
As can be seen, the arrival of Alejandro Zendejas is one of the most striking news in this new call-up as the player has accumulated 10 games with Club América in which he has scored 2 goals.
The call-up also highlights the presence of Marcelo Flores, the promising young Mexican player who plays for Arsenal and who has already been considered by Mikel Arteta to be part of the first team of the Premier League.
The "Palermo" Ortiz: another novelty in the Tri squad
Undoubtedly, one of the most striking novelties in this call-up, apart from the call-up of Zendejas, is the arrival of Arturo "Palermo" Ortiz, central defender of Pumas UNAM.
Ortiz has had very outstanding participation in this tournament with his team, which is why he caught the attention of "Tata", who called him to the Mexican squad that will face the Guatemalan national team.
Due to the fact that the match will be friendly and not a FIFA match, the Mexico coach will not be able to use the international players of the Mexican National Team, so he will depend on the players loaned by the clubs of the Liga MX 2022.
In addition, he will be able to call on players who play in Major League Soccer, such as David Ochoa, the goalkeeper for Real Salt Lake, as well as "Chelo" Flores, who plays for Arsenal but has not yet made his debut with the first team.
