The LA Galaxy’s Dos Santos brothers have been called up to the Mexico National Team for the friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 31, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.

In 2017, Giovani dos Santos earned his 100th cap for El Tri, in what was a very busy calendar year for Mexico.

Both Dos Santos made a handful of appearances for the national team last year and should be in contention to make the World Cup squad this summer.

This is the first of four friendlies for Mexico before the start of the FIFA World Cup. From here, they will take on Iceland, Croatia and Scotland in the coming months.

What do you think about the inclusion of Gio and Jona in the Mexico squad? Do they deserve their spots? Do you think the brothers should be in the Galaxy training camp instead? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
