A new call for Gerardo Martino came out and the criticism did not wait. In the first instance they questioned the absence of three Mexican players who proved to have a high level to reach El Tri, but still the 鈥淭ata鈥 decided to exclude them. In addition, the pieces that militate in Liga MX also generated controversy and there it was Miguel Herrera to light them.

Among the main criticisms pointed out to Martino鈥檚 call was the large number of Rayados de Monterrey players (6). It is worth remembering that before the arrival of V铆ctor Manuel Vucetich, 鈥淟a Pandilla鈥 came from failing in the Club World Cup and remaining at the bottom of the Mexican soccer table. Under these circumstances, it can be said that the performance of the soccer players has not been regular, nor sustained over time for them to be taken into account. (For a similar reason, 鈥淭ata鈥 left out Chofis L贸pez).

It seems to me that there are several players here who deserve a calltoday the call for Chuy comes out, it falls short, we could see a couple more of our players there on that listbut hey, it鈥檚 the coach鈥檚 decision鈥, declared Miguel Herrera at a press conference.

Tigres de la UANL will only have the presence of one soccer player among those called up to the Mexican team. Jes煤s Angulo Romero is the only feline representation within El Tri. The 鈥淧iojo鈥 considers that more players from his squad have made merits to receive the call.

As a strategist and footballer, I think there could have been a call for more people herebut we are happy for him (Angulo) and that he continues to go through that great football that he is showing and also reflect it in selection鈥, explained the Mexican strategist.

Tigres de la UANL, an overwhelming team

The feline team will precisely face Rayados de Monterrey in the framework of a new edition of the 鈥淐l谩sico Regio鈥. Miguel Herrera managed to structure a feared team in Mexican soccer. Offensive power is the club鈥檚 main weapon. Tigers march on the third position in the tournament with 20 points (6 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss)although it is worth mentioning that they have a couple of pending games that could take them to the pinnacle of Mexican soccer.
