Mexico is grouped with Nigeria, Belgium, Portugal, and Brazil.
  • Chepo de la Torre made his way to Europe this week to meet with Mexican players abroad. After his statements about returning to El Tri, will Vela be on the list to meet with for Chepo?

  1. good summer for el tri in all levels, But very interesting once Vela is back on the team, only a matter of time. Hernandez up front with Vela and Gio supporting its going to be epic.Everyone seems to be at a good point in football, all depends on the other choices from Chepo.

    Any idea what squad will be at the Toulon tournament this year ? considering all the diffenet things going on.

      1. nice, very good squad for el tri u20. I sure hope we take the tournament again but this years teams in Toulon look even harder but better for experience. Ive been waiting for Vela’s return to el Tri as my favorite player from Mexico. But will take some time to forgive him after his stuck up manors when he was here for a friendly. No love for the only Mexican supporter in the stance as he was only 5 feet away from me hahaha

      2. It will take time. But let us not forget that is there was a problem, it may have also been because of another player. What I heard was Salcido got off scott free for the same thing that Vela was suspended for. But as long as Vela returns, the healing (and scoring) can begin!

  2. Mexico ocupa nuevas caras me gustaria ver ha Vela en lateral derecha asi el e Dos Santos puedan estar cerca.
