To Qatar

Many of the players called up by Gerardo Martino are those who will be in Qatar 2022, so it is unlikely that anyone who is not among the 38 players called up will be in the World Cup.
6:23 PMa month ago

Full support

Guillermo Ochoa pointed out that no matter which players go to the World Cup or stay out, Tata will have the support because he has made a strong group since he arrived at El Tri.

"Tata has maintained a range of players since the first Gold Cup (year 2019) and has worked to keep polishing the style of play; the boss of the ship is Tata, the one who decides which players go to the National Team is him and we have to support."

Support from Liga MX

It should be noted that this week Yon de Luisa, president of Femexfut, indicated that they will have the support of Liga MX to finish the tournament earlier and have the players a few more days ahead of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

"We have received the support of Liga MX at all times. We are an extraordinary Federation in that sense of the good relationship between the League and the Federation, like last Monday when it was announced that the tournament ends on October 30, which will allow us to have a few extra days, which will allow us to fly to Europe and have that work prior to our arrival on 17 (November) to the World Cup," he said.
