Eleven Liga MX teams and one from Ascenso MX will be represented in the World Cup, where their players will suit up for seven different national teams: Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Colombia, Argentina, Panama, and Japan.
Juan Carlos Osorio has named the 23-man roster for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. There are not many surprises on the squad, with Osorio bringing an experienced team.
Only four of El Tri’s 23 are under age 25 (Carlos Salcedo, Edson Álvarez, Jesús Gallardo, and Hirving Lozano), while on the other end of the scale 39-year-old Rafa Márquez will be the second-oldest player in Russia this summer.
Notably, this is the first time Mexico’s World Cup squad has contained more players plying their trade internationally than domestically; just eight players come from within Liga MX, with the remaining 15 playing in the U.S. and Europe.
The Mexican national team will face their counterpart from Bosnia-Herzegovina in an international friendly this Wednesday. It will be El Tri’s first game of 2018 as they continue preparations for this summer’s World Cup.
Headlining the roster is 18-year-old Jonathan González, the young dual-national who has switched his international allegiance from the U.S, to Mexico. González represented the U.S. at the U-17 and U-20 levels before choosing Mexico.
The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) has announced the list of players called up for Mexico’s October World Cup qualifiers against Trinidad and Tobago and Honduras.
The roster is almost identical to the one that faced Panama and Costa Rica in September. Carlos Salcedo and Oribe Peralta are back after missing out last month due to injury, while Oswaldo Alanís and Miguel Layún also join the roster.
Gutiérrez suffered a sprained right ankle while Hernández picked up a left knee injury.
Juan Carlos Osorio has called up Raúl López (Pachuca) and César Montes (Monterrey) as replacements.
