Mexico will face the Netherlands in Amsterdam and brings back fond memories for the people of Mexico. The last time they met each other’s, Mexico won by 3 goals against 2. The authors of the goals were the current LAFC player Carlos Vela, who converted two goals, and the LA Galaxy player Chicharito Hernandez. This time Mexico will miss the goals of two of the most important forwards in its history.
Gerardo Martino, to this day, tries to convince Carlos Vela to return to play for the selection of Mexico, but is unsuccessful. Carlos Vela explains to him over and over again that he believes he will not get to Qatar 2022 in the best way, so he prefers to leave his place to a younger player.
The current LAFC player continues to prove to be at a high level despite not playing for several weeks due to an injury. The return is expected next week although they do not want to risk it in the face of the MLS playoffs. Vela, who has an extraordinary record in the MLS, knew how to defend the colors of Mexico in several World Cups.
It takes a lot of courage to announce that you no longer want to be part of a team like Carlos Vela did with the Mexican team. He speaks highly of the forward, who remains at a competitive level that would allow him to be in the national team, leaving the place to younger players so that they have a greater future projection.
