Herc Gomez and Sebastian Salazar pinpoint Mexico's areas of concern and give their suggested lineups following recent friendlies versus Iceland and Croatia.

The European season has now drawn to a close for the Mexicans abroad. Before several of these names begin their preparation for the World Cup, let's first take a look back and grade how the most prominent Europeos performed in their 2017-18 tournaments.

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez break down Mexico's 28-man preliminary roster for the World Cup and who might miss out on the trip to Russia.

Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado underwent surgery on Wednesday in a bid to be fully fit for the World Cup.

Real Betis' Guardado came off at half-time in the Seville derby on Saturday because of a recurring injury and the La Liga side agreed to release the 31-year-old to travel to Mexico to undergo tests.

Guardado has been a vital part...

'Gallito' Vazquez unlucky to miss out on World Cup, key for Santos in Liga MX final

After Mexico's preliminary World Cup roster was announced, Herc Gomez talks about which players he wouldn't take to Russia.

Santos Laguna holding midfielder Jose Juan "Gallito" Vazquez would be within his rights to shout about his 2018 Clausura form from the Torreon rooftops, lamenting the fact his name wasn't included in Juan Carlos Osorio's 28-player preliminary Mexico World Cup squad.

Vazquez has been the key player in Santos Laguna reaching Thursday's final against Toluca, playing every single minute of every game along the way; he's logged more playing time than any other player in the league this season.
