Néstor Araujo, in the best team of the group phase of the Gold Cup

Great recognition from CONCACAF to Néstor Araujo. The sky-blue center-back Araujo played the first two matches for the Azteca team (victories against Cuba and Canada) and rested in the third (victory against Martinique), a match that Mexico faced with the qualification to the next phase guaranteed.

The quarter-final match between Mexico and Costa Rica is played in the early hours of Saturday through Sunday (03:30 CEST). Striker Maxi Gomez and the Uruguayan national team also face an important commitment this Saturday: the quarterfinals of the Copa America against Peru (21:00 CEST, tvG2).
