Miguel Herrera has a great crop of footballers at his feet from which he will pick 23 to face Cameroon, Brazil and Croatia in this year’s World Cup. Among those, there is a handful of youngsters who have a shot at making the team.
These players have experience in some of the most demanding tournaments, despite their young age, and some of them have even left Mexico and now play in Europe.
Others, like Hiram Mier, have already been capped for the senior team, but his position is one of the toughest and most disputed and hasn't had as much playing time as he would want.
Nonetheless, these five youngsters have proven to be on the right track and if they keep up the good work they have a good chance at wearing the green jersey.
