Mexico arrives with more experience than in their last two World Cups

2018 May 16

The Mexican National Team that will be present at the World Cup in Russia will be the most experienced and with the highest average of the last two editions.

Despite the fact that Juan Carlos Osorio presented a preliminary list this Monday, with the players that counts, he points out that El Tri will have a team with the highest average age (28.4) of the last World Cups, largely driven by players like Rafael Márquez, 39, José de Jesús Corona, 37, and Alfredo Talavera, 35.

They are joined by the call of other players like Javier Hernandez, who is close to turning 30, same age as Hector Moreno, in addition to Andres Guardado, who will be 31 and is one of the most experienced team.

The midfielder is carrying an injury suffered by Real Betis and will be operated in Mexico.

This situation leaves a Tri with an average age higher than the last eight years, when some of those called already went to South Africa 2010.

With the average of stature, the Mexican team has stood out for the fact that each time it has a more physical presence. For Russia 2018, the average height is 1.80 meters, the highest of the last World Cups.

That is driven by footballers of good stature as Raúl Jiménez (1.90), Diego Reyes (1.89) and of course, goalkeepers Talavera (1.88) and Corona (1.84).

In South Africa 2010, the Tri that came averaged 1.77 meters, while that of Brazil 2014 had an inch more. Four years later, the trend is that the team also has a growth in stature compared to the last World Cup.
