Tri Reveals Nations League Prelist with Raúl Jiménez; The absences of ‘Chicharito’ and Ormeño stand out

‘Tata’ Martino presented a list that does include players like Raúl Jiménez, but left out ‘Chicharito’ and Santiago Ormeño

Javier Hernández and José de Jesús Corona continue to be deleted from Gerardo Martino’s Mexican National Team. Concacaf announced the preliminary list of the teams that will play the semi-finals of the Nations League. On the part of the Tri, the absence of ‘Chicharito’ stands out, in addition to that of the Cruz Azul goalkeeper. However, Raúl Jiménez and the youthful Efraín Álvarez are considered.

The list presented by the Mexican National Team is made up of 40 footballers. However, it must be cut to 23 players a week before the semi-finals of the Nations League are played, an instance that is scheduled for June 3, in which Mexico will face Costa Rica and Honduras against the United States. The final is scheduled for June 6.

‘Tata’ considered five goalkeepers, but Jesús Corona, Cruz Azul goalkeeper still does not appear in the Argentine calls, despite the fact that the goalkeeper was a fundamental part for the Machine to finish as the best defense of the regular phase of the Guard1anes Clausura 2021.

Among the 12 defenders that appear in the preliminary list, there are two players who have not yet made their debut with the Tri mayor. Osvaldo Rodríguez, from León, and Kevin Álvarez, from Pachuca, are the only ones on the list who still do not have minutes in the senior Mexican team.

Among the midfielders, the main novelty is the appearance of Erick Gutiérrez, who has not played since March, in addition to an injury, in April, marginalizing him from the closing of the Eredivisie.

Up front, the name of Javier Hernández, who has six goals in four MLS games, does not appear again, but has not returned to the Mexican national team since September 2019.

However, the ‘Tata’ has on the list Raúl Jiménez, an attacker who has not played for six months after the skull fracture he suffered on November 29 after a head clash with David Luiz, Arsenal defender.

In addition to the ‘9’ of Wolverhampton, the presence of Jesús Corona also stands out, who apparently an injury will leave him out of the rest of the season with Porto, in addition to Hirving Lozano.
