    For me personally even though I don't follow Mexican club football, I would say he is worth taking a look at. However by 2022 assuming he makes the team, he would be 33 years old since he is born 1989.

    It's probably gonna be an "old" Mexican side -- late 20's/early 30's yo players with only an handful of young players.

    All decent choices and some really good ones (i.e. attacking trident and Herrera). Only one I would leave off due to the following is Erick Gutierrez. 1) never really been high on 2) Got cramps playing in the Gold Cup (I believe) due to inactivity and can only imagine on the big World Cup stage 3) Carlos Rodriguez from Monterrey is currently in much better form and can play really well.

    I would add Gallardo as a lateral left/right

    Jona Dos Santos is a maybe.

    Side note: I have seen videos of Mexican "llaneros" that no joke, appear to be much better than some of the starting line ups on LigaMX first teams.

    I went with those players I guess to keep things fresh but to also give this Mexican team a sort of sense of youth whilst still having that experience
