Miguel Herrera mulls El Tri options

The FC crew discusses the Balotelli to Arsenal rumours, Chelsea's UCL chances, Man Utd's UCL chances and some Mexican National team news.

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera said Wednesday he will wait to name his World Cup team until May as he continues to evaluate all his options.

Miguel Herrera defended the inclusion of Javier Hernandez for Mexico's friendly vs. Nigeria.

"There are still two and a half months," he said during a press conference in reference to FIFA’s final date for national teams to hand in their final team lists. "I have some names in my head."

Herrera had encouragement for Manchester United striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, saying "Javier has the attitude, determination and is training very well.Physically he is in good shape and has 30 goals with El Tri."

But Herrera voiced his doubts about Cruz Azul’s Marco Fabian, even after Fabian’s spectacular goal in Cruz Azul’s 1-0 win over Puebla last weekend.

"Marco’s was a great goal and just that," Herrera said. "I have been following Marco for a long time, since he was with Chivas and I don’t feel he is at that same level."

Mexico will have two friendlies played by May -- against Nigeria (March 5 in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome) and the United States (April 2 in Glendale, Ariz.) -- at the time Herrera will be tasked with finalizing El Tri. The team that will play against Nigeria has begun practice and will travel to Atlanta next Monday to be joined by the remaining eight Europe-based players.

The players already in practice include Jesús Corona (Cruz Azul) and Moisés Muñoz (América), goalkeepers; Paúl Aguilar (América), Enrique Pérez (Atlas), Juan Carlos Valenzuela (América), Rafael Márquez (León), Francisco Javier Rodríguez (América), Miguel Ángel Ponce (Toluca), defense; José Juan Vázquez (León), Juan Carlos Medina (América), Isaac Brizuela (Toluca), Luis Montes (León) and Carlos Peña (Leon); Alan Pulido (Tigres) and Oribe Peralta (Santos), forwards.

The eight players not active in Mexico who will join the team in Atlanta are: Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio), Hector Moreno (Espanyol), Diego Reye and Héctor Herrera (Porto), Javier Aquino and Giovanni dos Santos (del Villarreal), Andres Guardado (Bayer Leverkusen) and Javier Hernández (Manchester United).

Against the United States, Herrera plans to call on 16 Mexico league players, including six from his former club America and four from reigning champs Leon.

Mexico will play in the World Cup in Group A, along with host Brazil, Cameroon and Croatia.

"We want to be among the top four. Our group is very tough but we want to make history in Brazil," Herrera said. "We want to play a very good World Cup and we know Brazil is the team to beat."
