Claudio Suárez picks his all-time Mexico XI

first_imgWorld Cup all-time XIs My first midfielder is Andrés Guardado, for his consistency while playing in various World Cups and because he has already won over 140 caps with the national team at the age of 31. He’s always there when Mexico need him. Gerardo Torrado is one of my three midfielders. Over the years he has been a significant and influential ball-winning player. Alberto García Aspe is my other midfielder. Like Torrado, Aspe was also very consistent and another Mr Reliable for Mexico.Cuauhtémoc Blanco is my pick just behind the front two. For me, he is the most talented player that Mexico has ever had. He always gave everything for the national team, everything! He’s one of Mexico’s all-time great goalscorers.Javier Hernández is one of my centre-forwards. Chicharito continues to be a supremely able footballer and nowadays he is the player we look to in the national team to score the goals. A natural goalscorer and they are quite rare. The final player in my all-time XI is Hugo Sánchez. What a player. He played at such a high level for so many years and became a towering figure in Mexico for what he accomplished in Europe with Atlético Madrid and then Real Madrid, where his goals helped fire the team to five league titles. Incredible. Pinterest Share on LinkedIn Share via Email World Cup 2018 Share on WhatsApp Can you choose a better all-time Mexico XI?

In my opinion, he was the best goalkeeper that Mexico has ever had.My first centre-back is Rafael Márquez because of what he has done in Europe with Barcelona, where he won four league titles and two European Cups. He has played over 140 games for the national team too – and he could feature in a fifth World Cup! Carlos Salcido was an extremely efficient centre-back and was so effective in over 120 appearances so he earns a place in my team. At right-back I would have the versatile Pável Pardo – he’s right behind me when it comes to the most caps for the national team – and to complete my defence I will pick Ramón Ramírez at left-back. He has done such important things with Mexico. He’s gone to World Cups, Gold Cups and won the 1999 Confederations Cup. He was one of the very best.
