London, here we come!!! Chicharito won't be alone cause let me tell you this U-23 squad is REALLY good. Now that we officially have the ticket for the olympics, it seems Javier will be one fo the 3 call-ups that the competiton allows over the age limit. Along with him will be a GK (Ochoa or Corona) and a CB, probably Hector Moreno. Giovanni, Jonathan and Carlos Vela are all under the age limit so that just kills.
Now regarding this Pre-Olympic tourney, I have to say there were some gratifying performances...one that surprised everyone was this kid Hector Herrera from Pachuca. Jorge Enriquez was a for sure starter in my books, but Herrera beat him out for the spot. Herrera has an incredible endurance, he defends and attacks at a great pace for the entire 90+ minutes.
It's a shame about David Cabrera, torn knee ligaments in the game vs. Canada, and he'll be out for 6 months so no Olympics for him. Enriquez will probably replace him today vs. Honduras.
yeah Herrera is one for the future. too bad about Cabrera, he is a Xavi in potential. Pulido another to watch out for. I could see Jimenez, Herrera, and Pulido in the 2014 World Cup Squad and ofcourse Cabrera if he fully recovers.
about time Mexico qualified with style and undefeated. plus we all know the real coach is Chepo de la Torre.
