Though enjoying his first call-up since last spring’s Copa America, Mexico playamker Cuauhtemoc Blanco has stirred things up by suggesting that it was time for apprentice keeper Guillermo Ochoa to take over for old master Oswaldo Sanchez.
The 23-year old Ochoa – 12 years younger than his Santos counterpart – has been patiently lying in wait since before World Cup 2006.
“(Ochoa) should be starting,” former teammate Blanco told the Chicago Tribune. “He’s the best goalkeeper on the team, he’s shown it at (Club) America.”
El Tri will be making their debut under new boss Sven-Goran Eriksson when they welcome CONCACAF World Cup 2010 Qualifying foe Honduras to Azteca on Wednesday night.
