why is everyone acting like Vela scoring a goal vs the US is the only worthwhile ? thing he's done in a while yet fail to bring up why he shouldn't be a starter for Mexico. Mexico isn't a stacked team and Vela is the best at his position. But even then, Vela's bread and butter isn't him scoring goals every game, his passing and football IQ is ahead of anyone in the roster as of now. People forget how well he links up with Hernandez, Lozano, Corona and Jimenez and creates chances for them. Most wingers hold on to the ball for too long or simply can't pass.
