Arsenal’s Carlos Vela Makes First Step for Mexico’s World Cup Squad

El-Tri head coach Javier Aguirre has confirmed today the list of the Mexican players who are currently playing in Europe for the upcoming World Cup in South Africa.

21 years old Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has made the step on this list along his good friend Giovani dos Santos (Galatasaray SK) and Hammers forward Guillermo Franco.

The biggest surprise was definitely that Dnipro Dnjepropetrovsk forward Nery Castillo was left out by the Mexican coach.

You can see here the full list of the players who are selected by Aguirre.

Rafael Márquez/Defense/Barcelona
Jonathan dos Santos/Midfield/Barcelona
Ricardo Osorio/Defense/Stuttgart
Francisco Javier Rodríguez/Defense/PSV Eindhoven
Carlos Salcido/Defense/PSV Eindhoven
Héctor Moreno/Defense/AZ Alkmaar
Guillermo Franco/Forward/West Ham
Carlos Vela/Forward/Arsenal
Giovani dos Santos/Forward/Galatasaray
Andrés Guardado/Midfield/Deportivo La Coruña

This is a huge step for Carlos because now he got the call for the actually 26-man big Squad for the El-Tri side, but three more players will be not taking the plane to South Africa to present their home country there. Javier Aguirre will announce the final Squad just a few weeks in front of the World Cup.

For Carlitos it is a dream to play for the Seleccion Mexicana in South Africa as well as the Mexican’s have big hopes in the young lad to fire them to a great result in the World Cup with his speed and skills on the highest level.

  1. at last u will get to watch the man u have cried wolf over

  2. I knew he was going to get called up && for sure he will be in the World Cup. He can show Wenger that he has enough skills to be in Arsenal’s 1st team. Oh && Zimmermann, I sent the website an email,can you please read it? Thanx (:

  3. Carlos vela is a good player will shall watch it in w/c

  6. oh myy god yesss…:) funallyy were going to see carlos play yaaaaaay ima buy a jersey yess carlos vela wooooow! i am so happy 😀 go carlos i love yuuuuu!

  7. Come on Vela fans, never never never did i doubt about Vela not making it to the World Cup and I’m still not. So get over it, and Vela, Hernandez, and Gio (along with Barrera, Moreno, Juarez, Jonathan, etc…) are going to get us really far in the World Cup because they aren’t afraid of any-body. So look out South Africa, France, and Uruguay because only one of you is going to make it to the next round.

  8. barry the gooner

    i would love to be proved wrong on my judgement on vela’s overall contribution.Can’t argue that he hasn’t had much arsenal playing time but his brief cameos don’t do him much favour he moans when only slightly roughed up, however let’s hope THE WORLD CUP will gee him up.

  9. he sure will have a great world cup! Some of those players know each other very well from 2005 peru. Hopefully mexico will do a great w.c. We got experience and youth combined in this team, what a agreat formula! Go vela!

  10. I’m so glad he got called up to el tri. I’m sure he’ll go to South Africa and represent our country…and he’ll show Wenger :). I’m so excited to watch him play. Vamos Carlos tu tienes todo el talentoo….vamos Mexico 🙂
