One of the great criticisms of Gerardo Martino were his choices in the goal. Despite Carlos Acevedo lived an extraordinary moment within the Liga MX, Tata left him out of the calls. Even the Santos Laguna goalkeeper was not considered for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. But in the era of Diego Cocca this seems to change.
The new Mexico coach included Carlos Acevedo in his list of 34 players. Without a doubt this is a big step for the young goalkeeper of 26 years, who is called to be the replacement of Guillermo Ochoa.
“It is not revenge, I see it as a new opportunity to be. I was barely a day and a half in Mexico City, the opportunity to enjoy the CAR, to train again and put on the colors of Mexico passed very quickly. I enjoy every minute that I am in the National Team, it is an extra motivationa new opportunity for me and to show that there is talent in Mexico,” Acevedo said in a statement released by Halftime.
Carlos Acevedo wants to contribute on and off the field
It is clear that the inclusion of Carlos Acevedo will be gradual, especially with the good performances of Guillermo Ochoa in the Salernitana of the Serie A of Italy. But the young Santos Laguna goalkeeper acknowledged that He will contribute to the group on and off the field in each of his calls.
“How is it possible that being 130 million we cannot demonstrate the quality of the country, infrastructure and great players that we have. My goal is to be in those calls, transmit good vibes, a good message and a lot of mentality so that we all do well as a country“he added.
Mexico will debut in the Nations League with a couple of games against Suriname and Jamaica. The El Tri games will take place on March 23 and 26 respectively.
