Mexican forward Carlos Vela has not joined his teammates on their trip to Houston, Texas where Javier Aguirre’s El-Tri side will take on Angola at the impressive Reliant Stadium on Thursday evening.
Vela has arrived in Mexico City last Monday, where he was able to sort out his problems with his US. visa as well as his passport.
The 21 years old stayed in the Aztec capital to recover from his jet lag as well as to have some light training sessions before joining the Mexican national side in the next days. Head coach Javier Aguirre has decided with Carlitos that a performance against Angola would come too early for the young Arsenal player.
Another reason to let him stay in Mexico was that he played with the Gunners on Sunday afternoon and immediately after the match he went to the Airport London Heathrow to take his plane to Mexico City.
