21 years old Carlos Vela was introduced with 34 minutes left on the clock in Mexico’s farewell battle with South American outfit Chile, as his native Mexico was able to beat a competitive Chilean side by 1:0, thanks to El-Tri striker Alberto Medina.
In front of 100.000 Mexican supporters at the impressive Estadio Azteca,Vela had his best chance as his long-range effort was deflected by a Chilean defender over the cross bar.
Just few minutes later Carlitos had another good moment , as Vela found Adolfo Bautista but Bautista mis timed to control the ball.
The former Pamplona genius had some very nice runs trough the ranks and improved the game of his team immediately. Especially his effort from long-range was very close.
Carlos will now head to Germany with his teammates to go into the final preparation stage for the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa. The Mexican national side will enter the Adidas Training center in Herzogenaurach on Tuesday.
