Marcelo Flores has joined up with the Mexico national team once again for their friendly against Guatemala later this week.
Mexico will play a friendly match against Guatemala at 01:30 BST on Thursday, 28th April, and Flores is part of a 20-man squad preparing for the game.
Given the club season is still going on, it’s not going to be a full-strength Mexico side. But it’s another opportunity for Flores to show what he can do with his national team.
Flores made his senior international debut in a friendly match against Chile in December, coming off the bench for the final minutes of a 2-2 draw.
The winger has since been involved in Arsenal’s Premier League squad, making the bench earlier this month. Though he’s yet to appear on the pitch for the Gunners.
With a total of 19 goals and assists for the Arsenal academy this season, Flores has been catching the eye at youth level. There’s talk that he might get a chance with the Arsenal first team in pre-season.
When he returns from international duty, Flores’ full focus will likely be on the first team for a few weeks, as the u23s conclude their season with a game against Leeds United on Friday.
With Flores in Mexico for their game on Thursday, he probably won’t feature in that u23 match.
