After Diego Cocca presented his first call as coach of the Mexico team and spoke about the case of Alejandro Zendejas, it has been unofficially known that the player would reject the offer of the Argentine coach and El Tri to play definitively with the team of USA.
According to information from the journalist Gibrán Araige published by the TUDN chainZendejas would have already made the decision of which country to represent. The striker of the Águilas del América opted for the United States team, although it is not yet officially known.
According to the communicator, the player would have analyzed his options and, according to his environment, he feels more affinity with the US team. “Despite the fact that he thought about it, analyzed and saw the options, it has been understood more in the world than the United States, he was in a concentration. To get to Mexico, he has to make the change of federation, a decision for life, it seems to me that everything in his environment ends up deciding for the United States ”.
Araige also informed that from the USMNT there would be plans to summon him for the FIFA date of March. “It did not appear on the (Cocca) list and it is a clear message. The United States has plans to summon him for the FIFA date in March and the League of Nations. It will arrive physically well. People close to me told me that he feels more American,” the journalist for TUDN highlighted last Thursday.
The selection of the stars and stripes is close to revealing its list of players for the matches against Granada and El Salvador for the Concacaf League of Nations. Everything seems to indicate that Zendejas will be summoned and would put an end to this chapter.
24 hours ago, Diego Cocca released the list of players who will be part of his first call-up at El Tri and explained that Zendejas was of interest to him, but the decision passed through the player.
The winger born in Juárez, Mexico, became a naturalized American and managed to play matches with the USMNT in its under-17 category and the senior team. He also wore the Tri shirt in a couple of games. For this reason, the 25-year-old figure had to sign a document definitively establishing his decision to play with Mexico, something he rejected last year when Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino was the coach.
