This Sunday, July 9, 2017 (8:50 AM Pacific) Mexico will host Germany at the Zocalo in Mexico City for a friendly match between legends of both nations. The match should be a fun and entertaining encounter between influential figures in the footballing history of both nations.
Mexico will have members of the 1986 and 1990 World Cup squads playing in the game. Some notables from the 86′ team include former flamboyant Liga MX manager, Tomas Boy and Santos Laguna’s assistant coach, Carlos Hermosillo. The 1998 team will have more recent names like Cuauhtémoc Blanco, Pavel Pardo, Ramon Ramirez and Claudio Suarez.
Two of the more intriguing players on the 98′ team will be the duo from TV Azteca former superstar goalkeeper, Jorge Campos and former Atletico Madrid striker, Luis Garcia. It is hard to tell who will have the advantage in the game but there should be some antics on the pitch from players like Tomas Boy and Jorge Campos that should not disappoint.
Germany will present several players from 1986 and 1998 as well as a couple of players from 1990. The most notable players from the 86 squad for the Germans are easily former Bayern Munich stars, Andreas Brehme and Lothar Matthäus.
The key standout from the 98 team is the former United States national team coach, Jurgen Klinsmann. It will be interesting to see the former American skipper face some Mexican legends in this encounter. The game should be an amusing clash and it should be a lighthearted even in Mexico City.
