More and more foreign naturalized Mexican or Mexican-American soccer players are showing their desire to be part of the Mexican National Team. The arrival of Funes Mori opened this door, which will seek to be taken advantage of by everyone who has the proper legal conditions to be part of the Tri.
Specifically and after the rejection of Ricardo Pepi who chose the United States National Team on the hour, there are three footballers that we could see for the first time and in an unprecedented way with the Mexican National Team shirt: Matheus Doria, Julián Araújo, David Ochoa.
The talented right-back the Galaxy requested his change of Federation since it has been decided definitively by Mexico, a fact confirmed after being left out of the call of the United States, being the same who rejected the call. Martino has shown that he trusts the MLS players, which is why we will surely see Araujo in El Tri soon.
Like Julián, Ochoa requested his change of Federation to FIFA and in his case, at this moment he is already eligible for El Tri. It will be difficult for him to add minutes evaluating the presence of Guillermo Ochoa and Alfredo Talavera, although, the intention continues to be to summon him together with the group and to form alongside the Mexican veterans. His immediate project is to be the goalkeeper of the next Olympic cycle.
The Brazilian has followed in the footsteps of Funes Mori, beginning the procedures to obtain Mexican naturalization and, in his own words, fight for a position within the Mexican National Team, which is currently in the midst of renovating its central defense.
