Qatar 2022 A couple of celebrity players’ hopes of making Mexico’s squad for Qatar 2022 would have been dashed. Meet the players who, in manager Gerardo Tata Martino’s opinion, would be preferred over Chicharito Hernandez and Marcelo Flores. Bayern Munich vs. Manchester City: Potential Lineups for the 2022 Club Friendly Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: 2022 Club Friendly Lineups Getty Images/Ronald Martinez Chicharito Hernandez would be unable to compete in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is quickly approaching, and with it comes the time for the managers of the 32 qualified National Teams to make a difficult decision: who will bet on for world soccer glory among the 26 chosen ones. In Mexico, Gerardo Martino would have made the decision, which would have excluded two fans’ favorites, Javier Chicharito Hernandez and Marcelo Flores.
Chicharito is one of the most famous names in Mexico National Team history. With 52 goals, he is simply El Tri’s all-time leading scorer. He is also one of two players in FIFA World Cup history to have scored the most goals while wearing the Mexican jersey (4 goals in 3 editions played).
Marcelo Flores, for one, is destined to be the future of the Mexico National Team. He is one of the most promising young players in this country at the age of 18, a fact that is supported by the fact that he has been trained in one of the most brilliant youth academies in world soccer, Arsenal FC, to arrive on loan as the star signing of Real Oviedo in Spain’s second division for the 2022-2023 season.

Who would replace Chicharito Hernandez and Marcelo Flores in Mexico’s squad for Qatar 2022?
According to TUDN insider Gibran Araige, Mexico’s manager would not consider the LA Galaxy striker and wonderkid Flores to occupy one of the 26 spots on the roster that will defend El Tri’s pride at the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
Thus, according to the journalist’s report, Tata Martino would have kept his word to speak with Chicharito, who would have apologized for his indiscipline in 2019, which kept him away from the Mexico National Team. The gesture would have been well received by the Argentine coach, but it would not have moved him ahead of English Wolverhampton star Ral Jimenez, Monterrey striker Rogelio Funes Mori, and those vying for the final spot in the attack Henry Martin from América and Santiago Gimenez from Cruz Azul.
Marcelo Flores’ spot as a winger in Martino’s 4-3-3 Mexico would be taken by undisputed starters Jesus Corona and Hirving Lozano, as well as Chivas’ Alexis Vega, who is usually a substitute. And the current Real Oviedo player appears to be too young for El Tri’s current manager to entrust him with the responsibility of playing in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
