First Mexico call for Arsenal midfielder Marcelo Flores
Arsenal midfielder Marcelo Flores has been called into the senior Mexico squad for the first time.
Jeorge Bird's Arsenal youth website reports Flores has frequently impressed for Mexico at youth level, most recently being named the player of the tournament for the U20s at the Revelations Cup.
The 18-year-old midfielder is also eligible to represent Canada (who he has been called up to a provisional squad at senior level) and England, but it certainly appears that he is now leaning towards representing Mexico.
Flores' involvement with Mexico does, however, mean that he will be absent when Arsenal U18s get their FA Youth Cup campaign underway with a trip to face Colchester United on December 10th.
Mexico will meet Chile next week.
