National team manager, Miguel Herrera, has named his Mexico squad ahead of El Tri’s forthcoming friendlies against Ecuador on March 28 and Paraguay on March 31. Herrera has announced three new faces that will be included into the team.
Pachuca’s Jürgen Damm, Pumas UNAM’s Eduardo Herrera, and Jesús Dueñas , who plays for Tigres, will all be making their first appearance with the national side.
The call-up also features regulars such as Real Madrid’s Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Leon’s Jose Juan “Gallo” Vazquez, and PSV’s Andres Guardado.
