Goalkeepers: Ochoa, Alfredo Talavera
Defenders: Severo Meza, Israel Jimenez, Jorge Torres, Francisco Rodriguez, Diego Reyes, Hector Moreno, Hiram Mier, Adrian Aldrete
Midfielders: Elias Hernandez, Javier Aquino, Reyna, Gerardo Torrado, Carlos Peña, Jorge Enriquez, Hector Herrera, Guardado
Forwards: Oribe Peralta, Sinha, Aldo de Nigris, Chicharito
Looking at the roster, my own initial impression is both positive and negative. I am still looking for Jonathan Dos Santos and Vela. However, things don’t look good for the two with El Tri. Herrera, Enriquez, Peña, Mier, and Reyes are great additions. Biggest surprise has to be Sinha, without any doubt. Personally, I do not see how the 36 year old is helping El Tri’s chemistry looking forward at 2013-14. It will be an interesting pair of games. On October 12th, Mexico will face Guyana in Houston. Then on October 16th, Mexico will be facing El Salvador at Estadio Corona.
*Side note: Hector Moreno was named Espanyol’s player of the year for 2011-12. Congratulations to Hector!
