With Mexico's next match coming up, everyone wants to know what Martino's possible roster will be to face Guatemala, in a friendly match in preparation for the World Cup.
More news about Mexican national soccer team:
The Mexican National Team will play against the Chapines next Wednesday, April 27, at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, United States.
This match will serve as preparation for Gerardo Martino to test new players and new tactical schemes, to face his commitments in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022.
But since this is not a FIFA date in which the coach can call the players who were part of his starting 11 in the past CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers, "Tata" will be able to try out new players.
But which players are likely to make the call-up?
Martino's possible roster to face Guatemala
Goalkeepers: Carlos Acevedo, Luis Malagón and Alfredo Talavera
Defenders: Erik Aguirre, Julián Araujo. Luis Olivas, Emilio Lara, Israel Reyes, Salvador Reyes, Jordan Silva.
Midfielders: Fernando Beltrán, Erik Lira, Efraín Álvarez, Uriel Antuna, Alan Cervantes, Omar Campos, Sebastián Córdova, Alfonso González, Mauro Lainez.
Forward: Erik Aguirre, Santiago Giménez, Marcelo Flores and Benjamin Galdames.
As can be seen, it is most likely that Mexico's coach will decide to try again the combination of players with which he faced their friendly match against Chile last December.
Alan Mozo and Juan Pablo Vigón: when will they get their chance in El Tri?
Two of the players most requested by the fans of the Mexican National Team are undoubtedly Alan Mozo and Juan Pablo Vigón, and so far they have not been called up to El Tri.
Mozo's case is special because even the press has debated Martino's decision not to call him up, and it has been continuously pointed out that it was due to the player's character.
The Pumas UNAM homegrown player has been criticized for having a very explosive character and reacting very badly to referees' signals.
However, there is a deeper problem with the player and that is that despite his position as a right-back, Mozo is very bad at defending.
It is worth remembering that the goal that Cruz Azul scored against them in the CONCACAF Champions League, through Cristian Tabó, was due to an oversight by Alan Mozo, who allowed him to head in practically alone.
The issue with Vigón is a bit more complex because it seems that Gerardo Martino alone is not convinced of his abilities, although the Tigres midfielder is going through an excellent moment.
However, so far he has not convinced "Tata" to call him up for El Tri.
