“I don’t talk to a lot of players, but I have spent a lot of time talking to Javier when we were in the bubble [MLS is Back tournament in Orlando in 2020]. And he [Javier] is a very smart guy, he’s very passionate about Los Angeles and he loves our league [MLS]. At the end of the day he is a very competitive footballer and the fact that he was not delivering on his own expectations was breaking his heart. Now you can see the joy in his eyes when he scores,” Garber told AS USA.
Never ending dilema! Javier Hernández is having a breakout season in his sophomore season in MLS with the LA Galaxy. The 33-year-old has scored seven goals y seven games, but was omitted from the Mexico national team for the upcoming competitions this summer. The reason is the following according to the head coach, Gerardo Martino.
Diego Lainez is another player that could be seeing his last minutes with the senior team as he is set to join the Olympic team. The Real Betis player is under the age of 23 and has the permission from the LaLiga side to play in Tokyo this summer if he is included in the final roster.
Jaime Lozano will be in charge of Mexico’s Olympic team this summer and he has to submit the final roster by 1 July. The Mexican coach can only add three players above the age of 23 for the tournament and according to multiple reports he has already made up his mind.
Gerardo Martino's team has to turn the page quickly, because they have two major tournaments ahead this summer. First the Tokyo Olympics and then the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The Mexico national team has a series of friendlies scheduled before the start of the two tournaments.
Hello and Welcome to Mexico vs Honduras, International Friendly Game that will be played Saturday June 12th at Atlanta, Georgia.
