Wolves: Fans concerned about Raul Jimenez’s inclusion in Mexico squad

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has been included in the Mexico squad for their upcoming friendly games against USA and Argentina.

Tim Spiers, Wolves correspondent for the Express & Star, confirmed on Twitter (via @tim_spiers_Star) that the 28-year-old will report for national team duty for the double header of games during the September international break, with both taking place in USA.

Mexico will meet USA in New York on Friday September 6th before travelling to San Antonio in Texas for their match against Argentina four days later. [via femexfut.org.mx]

Jimenez is currently one game away from winning his 80th cap for his country, having scored 21 goals in national team colours (0.27 per game).

The striker has been involved in all eight of Wolves’ matches so far this season, five in the Europa League qualifiers and three in the Premier League, scoring six goals. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]

His record for Wolves so far is 23 goals in 52 appearances (0.44 per game), having played in all but two of their games since coming to the club in summer 2018 – and both of those were in the Carabao Cup.

These Wolves fans on Twitter are fearful of Jimenez travelling across the Atlantic Ocean for Mexico’s friendlies, given his near-constant presence in Nuno Espirito Santo’s team:
