Mexico National team is getting ready for the commitments of the international break in preparation for the upcoming Gold Cup 2019, and on this FIFA date, 'El Tri' will face Chile and Paraguay, and they'll do it without striker Carlos Vela.

Coach Gerardo Martino did not summon the LAFC captain for the friendlies, an announcement that came as a surprise after the great moment Vela is living with his team at the start of the MLS season.

The Mexican refered to this after the game at Yankee Stadium where LAFC draw 2-2 with New York City FC.

"Well, that's what happens, when I'm there they kill me, when I'm out, they want me there. It's never quite right. I think they have terrific players, and always have new players that are doing well."

Vela talked about his moment with the LA team saying he will fight this year to become the MLS most valuable player. "I'm really happy, I'm focusing on my team and in playing well every weekend."

In the end, Carlos Vela wished luck to his teammates in the Mexico National team. "I hope they do a good job; I always want Mexico to win."
