Carlos Vela has left an indelible mark from almost every place he had been through in his professional career. In these days in which his name appears once again in Mexico national team, even though he quit some years ago, finally there seem to be someone who can replace the LAFC talent.

Aged 18, this attacker is called Alejandro Viniegra. Even though he played from Brazil youth national teams, he is still eligible for Mexico. Gerardo Martino set to work and achieve that he is call-up for U20 Mexico national team, in the start of his career with his new choice.


Alejandro, as he is known in Brazil, was called many times the new Neymar, for his great capacity and his incredible conditions. For Brazil, he played just three times for the U17 national team, after he was axed and never called again until now. Mexican advisers and Martino work hard to get him.

The attacker hasn’t yet made his debut in the team that he plays for, Cruzeiro. In Brazil there is great expectation on how he could do in the future and many people say that he is the exact copy of Neymar, when the Brazilian legend appeared in his first games at Santos.
