thumbnail Hello,

Argentinian-born Damian Alvarez is part of the squad that will face Colombia in Miami.

Mexican national team manager Jose Manuel de la Torre has named his roster for El Tri's friendly against Colombia on Feb. 29. The match will take place at Sun Life Stadium in Miami at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Morelia and Tigres, the co-Primera Division leaders, are the domestic teams with the most representatives on the national team, with three players each.

One name that will stand out is Damian Alvarez, a naturalized citizen of Mexico who was born in Argentina. Alvarez recently gained Mexican citizenship and has never been capped.

New York Red Bulls midfielder Rafa Marquez also made the cut.

Arsenal forward Carlos Vela, on loan at Real Sociedad, turned down a call-up for personal reasons, according to the Mexican Federation.
