Arsenal forward Carlos Vela arrived yesterday in Mexico City, to join the Mexican national side for their upcoming CONCACAF World Cup Qualifier against Honduras at the Estadio Azteca, which is located there.
Vela flew out on Sunday afternoon from London Heathrow Airport to the Mexican capital, after a dissapointing week for him as a Arsenal player.
Vela was dropped to the bench in last two fixtures of the Gunners and got unfortuantely no playing time from his manager Arsene Wenger, who still feels that the young Mexican is not ready for the Premiership yet.
The Arsenal manager said in a interview after the clash with West Bromwich Albion to arsenal.com:
“He has shown in pre-season he is a good player and he will take part in our team. We have four strikers and he is one of them. In a season like this one we have 60 games so he will play games. But he is going to Mexico tomorrow afternoon.”
Carlos looks now forward to get his vital minutes, when his native take on Honduras in Sven Göran Eriksson’s debut as Mexico’s head coach on Wednesday evening.
