Corona, Salcido, and Peralta are the three over 23-year-old players brought in as reinforcements.

Those dropped from the preliminary Olympic list and participants in the Toulon Tournament include: Liborio Sanchez, Hugo Isaac Rodriguez, Jorge Hernandez, Nestor Calderon, Candido Ramirez, Jeronimo Amione, and Alan Pulido.

The team’s send off game will be played on July 5 against Leon.

They will then travel to Europe and face their respective Spanish counterpart on the 18th.

Their final preparation game will be on the 21st against Japan in Nottingham.

Do you agree with the final list? Were the reinforcements the best picks?

  1. I think candido ramirez and alan pulido should have been included. I think jonathon dos santos would have been good to

    1. I really liked Candido Ramirez in Toulon, and think he should have been called. I can see why they didn’t call Pulido, since Peralta should theoretically take care of the goals. It seems a bit unfair to go through the whole process, only to be dropped in the end but this can be said for a few other players too.

      And Tena said just a few minutes ago the Jonathan Dos Santos asked to be left out of the squad so he could concentrate on Barca.

  2. Aquino!!!!!!! Watch he’s going to be beast then teams from europe are gonna want him:) #Mexico4Olympics

  3. Would have liked to see Severo Meza or Jorge Torres Nilo instead of Salcido. But I guess Salcido brings leadership and experience. Corona will be a good addition and will be good for his growth. It could also pave the way for Corona to be picked up by a European team. It would be really good for Mexico to have two goalies playing in Europe.

  4. Candido Ramirez should have gone and Alan Pulido should have also been on the list instead of Raul Jimenez. Im not liking Salcido to be one of our reinforcement, Torres nilo or another defencive player should replace him. Corona and Peralta are in there best form right now so I expect them to do well. Im glad Tena brought back Israel Jimenez to the team he was a big part of the team defencively and offencively.

  5. Lmao why salcido if they want exp
    They should of called rafa Marquez and Jona crys to be called to the seleccion and now he gets his chance and doesn’t take advantage of it

  6. Well see how it goes, I wouldn’t be surprise if some of these guys make it to the senior squad. I think that’s why salcido is there.

    1. In all honesty, and I could be wrong, but I think this will be Salcido’s last go for Mexico. The mentality should be building experience really early now with the young guns. I wish Vergara at Chivas would recognize that with not selling Fabian. Too much club pride can hurt the NT in the long run.
