‘Chepo’ de la Torre made his Euro club calls for the World cup qualifiers against Costa Rica. Here is who was called for the match…
- Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez (Manchester United)
- Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio)
- Francisco ‘Maza’ Rodriguez (Stuttgart)
- Giovani Dos Santos (Tottenham)
- Hector Moreno (Espanyol)
- Andre Guardado (Valencia)
Still missing from calls are Jonathan Dos Santos (Barcelona) and Carlos Vela (Real Sociedad). It is rumored Giovani will be unable to play still, due to his muscle injury dating back in Olympics against Japan. My hope is that some of the Olympic squad makes the match. I would like to see guys like; Marco Fabian, Javier Aquino, Javier Cortes, and of course Jesus Corona.
El Tri makes the trip to Costa Rica on September 7th. They will play at the beautiful Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica. Costa Rica is a very difficult team to play on the road, so this will be a big test for Mexico. However, just four days later (9/11), Costa Rica will take on Mexico at Estadio Azteca. We will keep you posted on the full roster called up for these games.
