The yellow players will be in the friendly against Nigeria on March 5 in Atlanta

Villarreal CF players, Giovani Dos Santos and Javier Aquino, have been summoned by Miguel Herrera and the Mexican national team to represent their country in a preparation match for the World Cup Brazil 2014. The game, against Nigeria will be held in the U.S. city of Atlanta (Georgia) on March 5, at 8:30 (local time) and is a part of the last six games that the ‘tricolor’ play before the final preparation before the World Cup.

For Aquino this will be his 23rd international match, while Giovani will play his 45th match. Both players are key factors in the yellow game plan combined, being regulars in the lineups arranged by Marcelino Garcia, a fact that has been reflected in this call up for the selection of Mexico.
