We are a little over 100 days before the ball starts rolling in Qatar and although there is very little to go, “Tata” Martino still does not have the list of players that will make up the delegation for the World Cup event. Although it seems that this is a problem, the truth is that this is because the great competition that exists means that each option has to be studied well.

The growth of Mexican soccer is one of the factors that makes the list increasingly difficult to put together. The complicated thing is not having a bad selection or bad options, but rather the opposite since, as the league grows, better players appear every time. That is why, in this post, we are going to mention which are the players who have the most chances of going to the next World Cup and the favorites of the fans. Let’s start.

FIFA World Cup 2022:

As we all know, Mexico has had a very complex group, where it will compete with Argentina, Poland and Saudi Arabia. “Tata” will have to face his team, which means that he knows many of his players and can put together a tactic that neutralizes Argentina.

For this, Martino believes that the best way to counter rivals is to resort to experienced players with a European rhythm, since most of the players who play in the World Cup participate in the best leagues on that continent.

The players who have almost a foot inside of Qatar are the following:

Hector Herrera

The fox is the maximum offer of hot mx, and this is because he is one of the most experienced players who are still playing today for the . Although “HH” has left European football and landed in the MLS, he is one of the most important cards that Tata Martino has for the World Cup.

In recent years, Herrera has been the target of harsh criticism for having a poor performance with the tricolor shirt, however, he has stated that this was because he had not been playing regularly for Atlético Madrid.

William Ochoa:

Without a doubt, he is another of the most important players that the tricolor coach has and this is because the great performances he had in past World Cups made him win the hearts of all Mexicans.

If the coach decides to include him in the list of 26 players for the world cup, for the “memo” it will be his fifth consecutive world cup and the third as the undisputed starting goalkeeper.

Hirving Lozano:

One of the most outstanding players that Mexico had in Russia 2018 was “Chucky” Lozano. He had a great performance the day the Mexican team made history and beat the reigning world champion with a goal from him.

Lozano’s participation in is almost guaranteed and this is because Mexico does not have players of the same category.

Nestor Araujo:

The player who recently returned to America is one of the safest cards that the tricolor coach has to be able to put together the defense. “Bebote” (that’s what his teammates call him) comes from playing several seasons at Celta de Vigo, in the first division of Spain, and his return to Mexican soccer was of great help to be able to rank local soccer .

The Olympic champion was going to be summoned to play the 2018 FIFA World Cup, however, a serious injury meant that he had to be withdrawn at the last minute.

Jesus Gallardo:

Although this is one of the players most supported by the Mexican coach, the truth is that his level in Monterrey is very low, which makes his call to the World Cup doubtful. This is why the summoning of “Vegeta” depends exclusively on his level rising again.

Gerardo Arteaga:

With the low level of Jesús Gallardo, “Tata” is already setting his sights on other players in his position, and the player with the best chance of replacing him is Gerardo Arteaga, a player for KRC Genk in the Belgian league.

Although many people were angry when he decided not to wear the tricolor shirt at the Olympic Games, the player had a long talk with Martino and made himself available to represent Mexico in the next World Cup.

Although there are still a few months to go, it is estimated that, at the end of September, Gerardo Martino will deliver the final list with the 26 summoned who will go in search of the trophy. On the other hand, it has already been confirmed that Javier “Chicharito” Hernández will not be part of the squad, so Russia 2018 could have been the last World Cup that this striker played.
