Mexico national team: The 18 football players are battling for the last six spots on the roster for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

Sand the deadline for delivery final list of 26 footballers who will be in Qatar 2022and while the vast majority seem to have their place in the World Cup, there are still several players and positions that generate doubts in Gerardo Martino.

We start with the goalkeeper, where Guillermo Ochoa and Alfredo Talavera have their place assured, leaving in suspense who will be the third archer. For the moment, Rodolfo Cota has an advantage, but Charles Acevedo seems to have the firm intention to fight until the end for this possibility.

In defense there are few places that the tricolor strategist has not yet defined. They point to Jorge Sanchez, Csar Montes, Nstor Araujo, Hctor Moreno, Johan Vazquez, Gerado Arteaga and Jess Gallardo have World Cup tickets.

Doubts are in a fifth centre-backwhere Israel Reyes from Puebla and Jess Angulo de Tigres are the only candidates to keep this vacant position.

In the immediately there is competition, since Kevin Ivarez and Julian Araujo are now joined by Emilio Lara in the climb to be the second option behind Jorge Sanchez. In addition to the above, the one that seems to not have a lot of spotlight, but I know the attention of who really decides the list, is Erik Aguirre. The Rayados footballer dominates several positions and is a firm candidate to “sneak” among the 26 elected,

The midfield is quite complete, leaving very few spaces for many candidates. Hctor Herrera, Andrs Guardado, Edson Ivarez, Erick Gutirrez, Carlos Rodrguez and Orbeln Pineda can pack their bags ahead of the World Cup, while names like Luis Chvez, Fernando Beltrn, Luis Romo, Sebastian Crdova, Rodolfo Pizarro and Roberto Alvarado are fighting for two or three places.

At the front, where everything seemed practically defined, the situation has evolved quite a bit over the past month. Tecatito Corona’s injury completely changed the plans, and although there is still little hope that the Sevilla footballer could be there, the chances are slim so Martino must be prepared not to have him in Qatar.

Ralph Jimnez and Chucky Lozano as the attacking banners have their guaranteed place, the same case as Alexis Vega, who today is Corona’s natural replacement and even looks like a starter. Henry Martin He may be having the best moment of his career and has been a constant in the calls, so if anything unusual doesn’t happen Yucatan will be in Qatar.

With his change of team, and his guaranteed minutes in Portugal, Diego Lainez has taken firm steps towards the World Cup and is virtually at the top of the World Cup plane. Uriel Antunaa ‘fix’ in Martino’s calls, has many opportunities to get involved and seek to reaffirm it in recent months, while the Marcelo Flores He still has hope of getting out of it at the last minute.

The problem and the doubt in front is rather in the position of 9, where until recently everything seemed totally set. The constant injuries Rogelio Funes Mori seriously jeopardize their participation in Qatar. The Rayados striker hasn’t attended a concentration with the tricolor since February; He has only played 140 minutes for Mexico since November last year. As if that weren’t enough it looks like his injury won’t allow him to be on the FIFA date in September so he will arrive at the World Cup with zero minutes and his fitness and football pace would be a total uncertainty.

This definitely opens the doors to Santiago Gimnez, who is ‘free’ to get on the World Cup ‘ship’ if he continues to have minutes and score goals now at Feyenoord in the Netherlands.

With this they are 20 the places already occupied in the World Cup list, leaving only six places for the following 18 names:

  1. Charles Acevedo
