Many of those from the Mexican national team currently represent teams in their homeland, a squad lacking in Premier League representatives, with Carlos Vela at Arsenal and Giovani dos Santos at Spurs the only English based players, the latter spending last season on loan at Galatasaray.
Javier Hernandez is soon to add himself to the list after joining Manchester United in time for next season and this squad will provide an excellent platform for Man Utd fans to monitor his prospective Old Trafford talents.
Guillermo Franco also spent last season on loan at West Ham United.
Mexico’s World Cup group appears likely to be one of the most closely fought groups in the first stage of the tournament. After drawing with hosts South Africa, Mexico will need to perform and secure a result against France in the next game to give themselves a chance of progression.
With many of their players not having experience at the top level of football within European leagues, the Mexican team may struggle.
