Mexico’s “Road to Russia” starts on November 10 when they face Belgium on a European tour, followed by a stop on November 13 to take on Poland. Two teams who very well could meet Mexico next summer in Russia, depending on the draw. The following roster will be the list to make the trip in November.

Take a look at who Juan Carlos Osorio called…

F0rwards: Tecatito, Hirving Lozano, Chicharito, Oribe Peralta, Raúl Jiménez, Uriel Antuna

Juan Carlos Osorio called up a familiar roster, with exception of Omar Govea and Uriel Antuna. The two youngsters will get a chance to make their El Tri debut on the road against two top-ten squads.

JCO has called up Giovani and Jonathan dos Santos, despite not being in playing form. Their team, LA Galaxy, missed the MLS playoffs and have not played in some time. I think this is clear evidence that Osorio fully expects to have them in the final 23 for Russia.

Everyone else on the roster was expected, for the most part. Here’s a predicted XI when Mexico faces Belgium.

3-4-3

  • Ochoa
  • Araujo, Reyes, Moreno
  • Salcedo, Herrera, Guardado, Layún
  • Tecatito, Chicharito, Lozano
