The Mexican soccer team arrives at the Qatar 2022 World Cup with a market value of 176.1 million euros. A low number due to the loss that some players have suffered in recent months.
Of the 26 members of the Tri, only nine players have an increasing value in their market price, which leaves 17 players with a drop in level, according to the Transfermarkt index.
The main players who are down
Guillermo Ochoa: The América goalkeeper is one of the first players on the undervalued list and has been on a descending level since 2018, when he defended the Standard Liège goal. 4 years ago his valuation was $4 million, currently his value is $1.20 million.
Nestor Araujo: The central defender of America has suffered several ups and downs in his career that has meant that his level is not maintained in the market. In 2020 he reached his best valuation at $9 million, while he currently only has $3 million.
Andres Saved: Midfielder Andrés Guardado is about to play his fifth World Cup with the Mexican jersey. Guardado was worth a high $8 million when he was with PSV Eindhoven in 2016, but since his time with Betis, the Mexican is worth $1.50 million.
Hector Herrera: The midfielder has been one of the midfielders who has had a big drop in value. In 2019 when he arrived at Atlético de Madrid he was worth up to $22 million dollars, but now after his move to MLS he only reaches $2.80 million at the Houston Dynamo.
Other notable players down: Raúl Jimenez, Uriel Antuna, Hirving Lozano, Rogelio Funes Mori.
Featured players on the rise
Edson Alvarez: The Mexican midfielder has been one of the players with the greatest increase in his rating and has even been targeted by big clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United. In 2019, Alvarez had a valuation of $8 million, but now he has $35 million.
Alexis Vega: Vega is the player with the highest price in Liga MX with $8 million dollars. The Chivas de Guadalajara attacker lives one of the best moments of his in his career and he will hope to demonstrate it in Qatar 2022.
Henry Martin: The Club América striker had a fall during 2020 when he had a cost of 3.20 million dollars, but now after a great Clausura Tournament he has been revalued with a price of $6 million dollars.
