With Mexico about to make a new call up for the upcoming international break, outlet Record today features a piece regarding the players who belong to European clubs.
Among those who could not travel due to Covid restrictions, there’s Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez, who missed the most recent games as he was not authorised to leave England.
Now according to columnist Ruben Rodrigues, the Mexican national team is working on agreements so they can have all players available.
He claims there’s now a deal with Wolves so Jimenez can play for his country in the next fixture. That was agreed once Mexico withdrew their complaint from FIFA and allowed the Molineux side to use the striker in the match against Watford last weekend.
That convinced Wolves to let Jimenez join his national team for the upcoming fixtures ‘without any problem’. Now all sides expect that the Premier League ‘do not say the opposite’.
Mexico are about to play Canada, Honduras and El Salvador, with the last game taking place on October 13th. If Jimenez features in all matches, then Wolves should have a plan for the striker’s quarantine if needed, as they face Aston Villa on the 16th and Leeds United on the 23rd.
