This afternoon the list of 31 soccer players will be announced, plus the eight or 10 young people who will accompany them to the concentration for Barcelona, together with a media campaign that seeks to recover the credibility of the Mexican fans towards their team. The novelty in this list and that appeals more to a stubbornness of the coaching staff of the Mexican team that to a solution or a hierarchical weight of the player, it is Jesús Manuel Corona, who with everything and his double bill will be on this list that will fly to Europe on Monday to concentrate for 15 days and then arrive in Qatar.

TANO FIRM AND CONTINUE WITH FULL SUPPORT
Americanism is going through one of its most frustrating moments in its history, full of disappointment, anger and disenchantment, after being eliminated at the hands of Toluca after being the best team in the tournament, and where it achieved what few would have done in that institution, make play, shine, score and dress the field of the Azteca Stadium. This same thing has made its board and the owner of the team make an analysis, and more than the result go to the forms and modes of play, which have not been presumed for a long time, obviously, without leaving aside the painful defeat and failure in the attempt to get the long-awaited title that has been denied them in eight tournaments.
The board of America for six months offered Ortiz one year with the option of another, so they will make it valid for his work and manners with the team, which gave him the approval and unanimous support of his board and owner of the team, added to the self-criticism he had after the game against Tolucaattitudes that his management values for the person and professional that he is, and that shows them the path with which he guides the team.
Although the staff has not forgotten the setback suffered based on the historical demands of the squad, for this reason, for this next tournament, which will start in two and a half months, some modifications will be made to its squad, a couple of players and in some cases the negotiation of a renewal will be concluded in search of keeping the bulk of the team and this maintains the style and football that excited more than one.
It should be noted that they will search the local market, since to bring in a foreigner you first have to open the places, with some foreigners being the ones who owe the most to this squad, since they came as figures or solutions for the team and ended up being a pain in the neck. head for the different technical bodies.
On the subject of the renewal of Guillermo Ochoa, with whom there have been more than three talks in the last two weeks, between the board and the people who manage it, the difference lies in the duration of the contract, since America offers one more year and the goalkeeper wants at least two years in the new document, the economic issue will immediately come up at any time, although Ochoa and his people know that the claims cannot be the same as when he returned to the Coapa club. This same week both parties will sit down again to continue with this topic and be able to get along and sign the new contract.
Another one who has six months left on his contract is Bruno Valdez, who is in the best of communications with his board and coaching staff, so that he decides what he wants to do these six months, either end his contract or have a better proposal to find his way out this winter. Injuries have been a constant in recent tournaments, since the quality of the central defender is more than confirmed.
