As if they weren’t already magnets for criticism, Nestor and Antonio are back on the FMF State of Mind Podcast to get out their crystal balls and attempt some predictions.

The guys will each give their starting XI for Mexico at both the 2022 and 2026 FIFA World Cups. It’s no secret that big changes are coming for El Tri. FIFA’s 11th best team in the world is in the middle of a generational shift and there are several young players making waves in Mexican football.

Considering the fact that trying to gauge a Mexican soccer player’s career based on their first few years has proved to be an impossible task, these predictions are risky.

Check out some of their picks below and tune into the podcast to hear the rest of them and their reasons.

Of course, we know no two teams will be alike. Who did we forget? Who doesn’t deserve a place? Give us your thoughts on our squads and tell us your own picks in the comments below or on Twitter! Don’t forget to come back to this page in two and/or six years to violently remind us how wrong we were.
