Wolverhampton Wanderers star Raúl Jiménez is always in the Mexican media’s spotlight, and it’s no different today.
There are two reasons why the striker is highlighted in his country on Friday. Firstly, because of manager Nuno Espírito Santo confirming the player has been able to take part in training with his teammates as he recovers from a head injury.
And secondly, it’s also claimed that Raúl Jiménez could be featuring for Mexico in the Olympics this year.
ESPN brings a report saying the national team has a pre-list of 62 players who could go to the tournament. All of them must give their authorisation to be included there.
Jiménez, who turns 30 in May, is a candidate to be one of the three players who are over 23 years old to join the squad, along with the likes of Carlos Vela and Hirving Lozano.
The Wolves star was part of Mexico’s squad which won the London Olympics in 2012, and despite being out of the list in 2016, he could be back at the tournament, expected to start in July, again.
