A couple of surprise moves happened/were confirmed this weekend. The Tecatito to Porto rumor was already strong and nearly a certainty but he wont be the only Mexican on the move.
Episode #2 of The Colorful Kit Podcast is here. We discuss Mexicans in the Champions League and try to figure out Tuca’s starting lineup.
Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferreti has released his roster for the upcoming September friendlies against Trinidad and Tobago and Argentina. The talk immediately turned to the absence of usual starter Guillermo Ochoa, as well as the Dos Santos brothers. While Ochoa is likely to be out due to lack of playing time, the Dos Santos brothers being left out feels odd. They were seen as bright spots this summer. Gio is also having an incredible debut season for LA Galaxy despite only having been with the team for about a month. There is chatter that this may be due to tweets made by them about Piojo’s firing. With the Dos Santos brothers missing, here is my starting lineup prediction.
We have been meaning to get a podcast going, focusing on Mexicans Abroad and the National Team as whole. Here is Episode #1, our season preview.
Please give us your feedback on what you want to see covered.
