The best-kept secret has been revealed as Gerardo Martino first call up list for Mexico National Team was announced.

The list includes only the Liga MX players, which is why there is no surprise to see that Chivas, Monterrey, and Tigres are the clubs that provide the most players with four each.

The novelties of the roster include Carlos Rodríguez from Rayados, Atlas midfielder, Juan Vigón, and Chivas striker, Alexis Vega though he hasn't shown his best version, in his time with Toluca showed the scorer he can be.

One of the most impressive details of 'Tata' Martino's list is that he will look for a new goalkeeper, ending the predominance of Guillermo Ochoa, Jesús Corona, and Alfredo Talavera. He called up goalies Hugo González, Raúl Gudiño, Gibran Lajud, and Jonathan Orozco.

The weakest line still is on the front, with only two option, Vega, mentioned before and Henry Martin, who in America has the complicated task of fighting against Oribe Peralta and Nico Castillo.
