  1. WHAT THE #$%&!!! Seriously!? Torrado, Maza, Meza, and these naturalized 30-something-year-olds!? Chepo, I don’t like you very much right now. Expect to get swept under the rug by Costa de Marfil. When do we get a break from this guy? Taking our beloved team and grinding it on the ground.

      1. Yeah! They all were. Naturalized Mexican just don’t need to be called. I can understand them trying to join a NT, but this is completely uncalled for seeing that they just don’t suit well when there are others that could fit the bill and are younger and better. Chepo, you dumb putz. Get it together!!! Please get fired. The player selection alone should merit a response and action to get him fired. Torrado should put the NT ahead of him and say to Chepo that he doesn’t want to be called and to give his spot to someone more capable. So should Maza and Salcido. Time is up, man.

      2. If they win this match against Costa de Marfil, I will not change my opinion. They should still go. Time to pass the torch. I hope Drogba tears the old dudes to shreds and exposes them into retirement. Good luck, MEX… you’ll need it…

  2. Dos jugadores naturalizado I dont care how good they play chepo shoudnt call them fifa should get involve on this type of situation. If it continues its going to ruin the game.

  3. Typical mexicans to say “naturalizados” shouldn’t play on the national team. I as a mexican, am calling all of you all out. 1st of all Germany and Italy have had naturalizados play for them, thats 7 world cup titles combined. Who the hell is mexico to NOT want naturalizados? they must be REALLY REALLY good to have pure mexicans play. The next point is if you are going to call up naturalizados why not call the best one, like lucas lobos? Chepos player selection is pretty bad, everyone has their opinion on who should be on the team and who shouldn’t. Regardless of who you think should be on or off, all the players have had a pretty bad year, only chicharo and corona have probably been the most consistent. At the end of it all in a friendly you should be looking to see if any player can make the jump to first team starter or sub. Which honestly the form that mexico is in id take damian and chaco any day.

    1. I don’t have a problem with naturalized players…but these guys aren’t that good, and they aren’t young. I can’t see them doing anything special. We have seen Alvarez before and it was disappointing.

      1. I agree that they are not that good, thats why I said lucas lobos shouldve been the one called up. But not that good is basically the mexico team right now. Chepo is probably looking for a spark on the team.I have no idea why if hes looking for a spark he doesnt give ulises davila, tecatito, or just beg jona and vela to come back.
