Carlos Queiroz included Edwin Cardona in the pre-list of 40 players of the America's Cup. The coach explained his appeal and also of the other Mexican soccer players. The Pachuca midfielder scored six goals, the last one scored on 28 April in Pachuca's 2-0 win against Atlas.
"I called him because of his quality, his vision. He is in every attack action of his club, he has a punch, a goal position and I summed up in few words, quality. Edwin is a player with enough experience for the Copa América to reach the final list. He is a different midfielder than the others we have, "he said of the player who is the second with more shots in the MX League and the one with more assists.
In relation to the other, he called for Mexican William Tesillo, Yairo Moreno, Matheus Uribe, Andrés Ibargüen and Roger MartínezHe said: "the others, we compare the players position by position." It is not to compare Millionaires with Milan, he is player with player in his position, there are positions that we need in the team and they convinced me by his qualities. Colombia, Brazil or Mexico, for me, it is important to feel that the player can help me build the team. It is my only reference to make the final decision"he said.
On the list, Moreno is one of the surprises, the southpaw extreme that stood out in the DIM played in the Leon of Mexico 12 games, three of them like titular and scored a goal.
