I was having a conversation with our very own Martin Del Palacio the other night and I told him that I was pissed that Mexico would not be able to take their World Cup squad to Copa America because of the CONCACAF U-23 rule. IMO, Mexico will have a very solid team starting the new cycle. Strong enough to challange for the Copa America. And I would like nothing more than to hoist that wonderful trophy in Argentina of all places. Martin said that it did not matter because of the five refuerzos and we began making probable line ups but I think he was drunk, lol, and we did not finish the team. So, I present to you fellow BSMX posters this thread. Let us build probable line ups and next year we can see how close or far off we were. Which players are currently in a hot streak and by the summer of 2011 will be out of the radar. Current Squad: GK Luis Ernesto Michel (1979-07-21) (age 30) GK Guillermo Ochoa (1985-07-13) (age 24) GK Óscar Pérez (1973-02-01) (age 37) DF Paul Aguilar (1986-03-06) (age 24) DF Efraín Juárez (1988-02-22) (age 22) DF Jonny Magallón (1981-11-21) (age 28) DF Rafael Márquez (1979-02-13) (age 31) DF Héctor Moreno (1988-01-17) (age 22) DF Ricardo Osorio (1980-03-30) (age 30) DF Francisco J. Rodríguez (1981-10-20) (age 28) DF Carlos Salcido (1980-04-02) (age 30) DF Jorge Torres Nilo (1988-01-17) (age 22) MF Israel Castro (1980-12-29) (age 29) MF Jonathan dos Santos (1990-04-26) (age 20) MF Andrés Guardado (1986-09-28) (age 23) MF Gerardo Torrado (1979-04-30) (age 31) MF Pablo Barrera (1987-06-21) (age 22) MF Cuauhtémoc Blanco (1973-01-17) (age 37) FW Adolfo Bautista (1979-05-15) (age 31) FW Giovani dos Santos (1989-05-11) (age 21) FW Guillermo Franco (1976-11-03) (age 33) FW Javier Hernández (1988-06-01) (age 21) FW Alberto Medina (1983-05-29) (age 26) FW Carlos Vela (1989-03-01) (age 21) CONCACAF, the regional governing body, said Wednesday that other than the five wild-card players, others on the team will be restricted to players eligible for the 2012 London Olympics, limited to players born in 1989 or later. Mexico has been in every Copa America since 1993. Judging by the above statement the only eligible WC players we would have are; The Dos Santos Brothers and Carlos Vela. My best guess is that the five wild-card players will be; one goal keeper, two defenders, one midfielder, and one striker. So my team so far consists of: Ochoa, Maza, Moreno, Jonathan, Guardado, Gio, ChichaRiot and Vela. I went with the WC squad players because they will have played together the longest. Young players that I can think off at the top of my head; Cesar Ibanez, Edgar Pacheco, Juan O'Campo, Michel Vasquez, Christian Perez, Jorge Enriquez and Tony Lopez. Well, that is it for now. I am very interested in what the rest of you have to offer. One thing I have noted; using wiki; O'campo, Perez, Vasquez, Lopez and Enriquez are all between 183/185m. Hot damn. Talk about fielding a tall squad. I will have to double check other sites but if the height is correct it is impressive.
