Gerardo “Tata” Martino now has seven months to solve the problems that the Aztec squad showed during the CONCACAF Qualifiers, especially improving their performances from midfield up, as well as finding a striker that can score consistently.


El Tri followers have been asking to have Carlos Vela on the roster once again, as he’s one of the best active scorers that Mexico has, although he hasn’t played for the Mexican national team since the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

But the truth is that Vela won’t play with El Tri again, partly because of the problems he’s had with FMF and inside the locker room and partly because his lack of commitment with El Tri colors, as he’s refused to play for the Aztec squad in the past.

The case of Carlos Vela is part of a few exceptions, but given his talent is one that is often talked about as his presence in the Mexican national team would mean an improvement from the current roster given his good and consistent performances.

But for every Vela there’s a Jonathan Gómez, as the 18-year-old left-back has decided to join Mexico National Team even if he made his process with the US Soccer Youth National Teams and already had his first cap thanks to Gregg Berhalter.

Gómez, who plays in Real Sociedad B under the coaching of Xabi Alonso, joined the txuri-urdines over the past winter transfer window out of Louisville City SC from USL Championship after being formed in the FC Dallas Academy teams.


Will he make it to Qatar 2022?

Gómez hasn’t decided with which team he wants to play for, given that his dual nationality allows him to play for either the Stars and Stripes or The Aztec squad. But due to his young age, it looks improbable that he’ll be part of either team for Qatar 2022, although he’d be ready for the 2026 World Cup.
