Gio is going to Brazil, Javier Aquino is not

The Mexico World Cup squad was released today. Disappointment for Javier Aquino, but one Villarreal player makes it.

Our man in Brazil.
Our man in Brazil.
Manuel Queimadelos Alonso

Note that this is not a squad of 30 that will be cut to 23; it's a squad of 23.

It is possible of course that Aquino, or other players, could be called up if there is an injury in training camp.

Here is the full list:

Goalkeepers (3): Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio/FRA), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca)

Defenders (8): Paul Aguilar (Club America), Andres Guardado (Bayer Leverkusen/GER), Miguel Layun (Club America), Rafael Marquez (Leon), Hector Moreno (Espanyol/SPA), Diego Reyes (Porto/POR), Francisco Javier Rodriguez (Club America), Carlos Salcido (Tigres) 

Midfielders (7): Isaac Brizuela (Toluca), Marco Fabian (Cruz Azul), Hector Herrera (Porto/POR), Juan Carlos Medina (Club America), Luis Montes (Leon), Carlos Pena (Leon), Jose Juan Vazquez (Leon)

Forwards (5): Giovani Dos Santos (Villarreal/SPA), Javier Hernandez (Manchester United/ENG), Raul Jimenez (Club America), Oribe Peralta (Santos), Alan Pulido (Tigres)

A tough group for them--Cameroun, Brazil, Croatia.
