Mexico Squad For 2010 World Cup

Barcelona midfielder Jonathan Dos Santos is one of three players to miss out on Mexico’s final 23-man squad for the World Cup finals.

Jonathan was overlooked by coach Javier Aguirre despite playing the full 90 minutes of Mexico’s 5-1 friendly win over Gambia on Sunday. Defensive duo Juan Carlos Valenzuela (America) and Adrian Aldrete (Morelia) were the other two players to miss out.

“The Mexican Football Federation is grateful to Jonathan Dos Santos Ramirez for his dedication, discipline, professionalism and commitment shown during the preparations with the national team,” a statement on the governing body’s official website read.

While Jonathan missed out there was better news for his brother, Giovani, who was included after spending last season on loan at Galatasaray under his former Barca boss Frank Rijkaard. Manchester United-bound striker Javier Hernandez was included following his double in the friendly against Gambia in Germany.
