A few minutes before the official list of players summoned to the Mexican teamthe first of this 2023 and with Diego Cocca as a coach, it is almost taken for granted that Javier Hernandez He will not appear, although this will not exactly mean that the doors will be closed again to the top scorer in history of El Tri.
And it is that the issue is not exactly football, but rather a medical issue, since Chicharito has an injury in the hamstring of the right leg and He still has a few weeks of recovery awaiting him, according to what the player himself declared would be between 2 and 5.
“Am I going to play in Dallas? No, I am recovering from my injury, I will be between 2 to 5 more weeks because we must be very careful to avoid relapses, ”he expressed during a Twitch broadcast.
However, hours later, his DT Greg Vanney came out a little upset to deny this information and ensure that the player’s recovery time will be between 10 and 15 days.
Whatever the date of his return, the star of the LA Galaxy He would hardly be ready to play the matches for which the Tri players will be called up this time, so the possibility of him being called is very remote.
It is worth remembering that the players who appear on the list this Thursday will face Suriname on March 23, that is, in three weeks, and Jamaica 3 days later.
Despite everything, Javier Hernández would not be ruled out for future calls, since the new coach could well give him a new opportunity at some point in the year, although that will also depend on the level that the player shows once he has recovered from his injury.
