Aren't Marquez and Pardo hurt? And Dos Santos gets called, but not Vela, who actually plays? Hmmmmm.

Vela is suspended for the game.

Also, I believe only 18 players will make the roster for game day so might as well call on Marquez and Pardo even if they are injured, although I think both will be fine by the 11th.

Having them for the camp helps and motivates all these players. They know that not all of them will be playing the match, so they have to work very hard in order to get in the 18. Sven will pick the players that look the best while training and go from there.

I agree with you Luis, Marquez and Pardo should be good to go by the 11th.

Let's hope for a great game and that it lives up to the hype!!! Vamos Mexico, SI SE PUEDE!!!
