There are several days until the international soccer transaction market closes. However, it is surprising that the only member of the National Team who represented our football at the Tokyo Olympics, who has managed to go to European football, is the central defender Johan Vásquez.
No one can question that this young man, formerly of the Rayados del Monterrey and the Pumas, has talent and virtues that project him with more than enough merits to a more competitive football, but at least for me his signing for Genoa was surprising. Italian division. The left handed Vásquez, in parallel to his qualities, has a great representative and the conditions of his price were undoubtedly very accessible.
It has not been the case of other talented young people who showed off, obtaining the bronze medal, under the orders of Jaime Lozano. The Americanist Sebastián Córdova or the striped Carlos Rodríguez, to go no further. Or the cruzazulino Luis Romo and the also Americanist Henry Martín. The four, beyond having shown their quality with their teams for months, looked spectacular in Tokyo. Of these four, the only one who has been mentioned as a possible transferred player in this market is Romo, but according to the directive that owns his rights, a firm and serious proposal has not arrived.
So it will be very complex for more Mexican players to come out and join the legion led by Raúl Jiménez, Hirving Lozano, Jesús Manuel Corona and others. I am not for the task of giving any talented Mexican player to markets that buy very expensive elsewhere, but we would have to study the case of José Juan Macías and the facilities they gave him in Chivas to go to Getafe in the Spanish league just a few weeks ago.
It would not get in the way of generating a strategy as the Mexican Soccer Federation in order to make a more competitive selection for Qatar 2022 and for the 2026 World Cup of which we will be co-hosts.
