The Argentine coach opted for a "European" base squad with 12 elements for his first call-up list with Jona dos Santos from LA Galaxy too. Gio and Carlos Vela are out.
It's finally here, the first roster of the Argentine Gerardo 'Tata' Martino for the upcoming FIFA Date in which the Mexican National Team will face Chile and Paraguay.
The list includes 12 players who compete in the European football, adding the presence of Jonathan dos Santos who plays in the MLS. Among the absent ones, it stands out Giovani dos Santos, Carlos Vela, and Marco Fabián.
Even though Martino tried out goalies from the Liga MX, there weren't a lot of novelties as Guillermo Ochoa appears, as well as Jonathan Orozco who was part of the process of Juan Carlos Osorio and Raúl Gudiño who debuted with 'El Tri' last year.
The young sensation of Monterrey, Carlos Rodríguez could make his first appearance as he has been gaining ground in the First Division.
This FIFA Date will be the first for 'Tata' Martino as the Mexican coach, being the Chilean team the first team Mexico will face on March 22 and Paraguay the second on March 26.
