Mexico’s national soccer team is running out of time to squash the injury bug.

El Tri coach Juan Carlos Osorio announced his team’s preliminary squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup earlier this week. He would have liked to name his final 23-man squad, but a number of potential players are battling injuries, and the coach needs time to assess their condition with less than a month remaining before the tournament kicks off.

Marc DiBenedetto and Marcus Kwesi O’Mard analyze Mexico’s preliminary squad and try to assess how injuries might affect El Tri’s World Cup preparations on this week’s episode of “The NESN Soccer Show,” which you can listen to here.

They also discuss notable World Cup snubs, Atletico Madrid’s Europa League final victory and Gigi Buffon’s imminent departure from Juventus.
