  • Description

    MEXICO'S WORLD CUP SQUAD ARRIVED IN LONDON ON SUNDAY. THEIR TEAM MANAGER, IGNAZIO TRELLES WAS NON-COMMITTAL ABOUT HIS TEAM'S CHANCES. "WE WILL DO OUR BEST", HE SAID.

    THE MEXICAN TEAM ARE GENERALLY REGARDED AS RANK OUTSIDERS FOR THE WORLD SOCCER CUP AND EVEN THEIR MOST ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORTERS ARE PREPARED FOR MEXICO'S QUICK EXIT FROM THE FINALS WHICH BEGIN ON THE 11TH OF JULY. THEY WILL BE PLAYING IN QUALIFYING GROUP ONE WITH ENGLAND, URUGUAY AND FRANCE.

    THE MEXICAN SQUAD INCLUDES SEVERAL PLAYERS WHO ARE FAIRLY OLD BY INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS. THEIR 37-YEAR-OLD GOALKEEPER, ANTONIO CARBAJAL, IS IN FACT BIDDING FOR A RECORD WHICH MAY NEVER BE SURPASSED IN WORLD CUP FOOTBALL - TO PLAY IN THE WORLD CUP FINALS FOR THE FIFTH TIME. APART FROM THE OLDER MEMBERS OF THE SQUAD MOST OF THE OTHERS ARE YOUNG AND A LITTLE SHORT ON INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE. NO DOUBT OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE SOUGHT TO "BLOOD" THE YOUNGER PLAYERS IN ORDER TO BUILD UP A TEAM TO GIVE A GOOD ACCOUNT OF ITSELF IN THE 1970 COMPETITION WHEN MEXICO WILL BE THE HOSTS.

    TEAM MANAGER TRELLES IS RELYING ON GOOD PERFORMANCE FROM SOME OF THE YOUNGER PLAYERS, SEVERAL OF WHOM HAVE SHOWN UP WELL IN TRAINING MATCHES. TRELLES HAS SAID THAT HIS TEAM WOULD CONTINUE TO PLAY THE 4-2-4 FORMATION WHICH THEY ARE ACCUSTOMED TOO. HIS TWENTY-FOUR MAN SQUAD IS AS FOLLOWS:
    GOALKEEPERS: ANTONIO CARBAJAL, IGNACIO CALDERON, JAVIER VARGAS.

    FULLBACKS: ARTURO CHAIRES, MARCO ANTONIO, RAMIRO JESUS DEL MURO, GUILLERMO HERNANDEZ, GUILLERMO SEPULVEDA, GABRIEL NUNEZ, IGNACIO JAUREGUI.

    HALFBACKS: ISIDORO DIAZ, LUIS REGUERIRO, FELIPE REVULCABA, MAGDALINO MERCADO.

    FORWARDS: ELIAS MUNOZ, FERNANDO BUSTOS, SALVADOR REYES, JAVIER RAGOSO, JOSE LUIS GUERRERO, ENRIQUE CISNEROS, AARON PADILLA, RAMIRO NAVARRO, GUSTAVO PENA.
