Hopefully City will play with more passion than they did on their tour last summer where they seemed very disinterested and uninspiring. With City qualifying for the Champions League and having won the 2011 FA Cup, I hope the team will have a lot more vigor about them against a strong Mexican side. It should be a great test in City’s first preseason match of the summer.
Manchester City’s roster for the US tour is as follows:
GOALKEEPERS (4) – Joe Hart, Eirik Johansen, Loris Karius, Stuart Taylor
DEFENDERS (9) – Dedryck Boyata, Gaël Clichy, Aleksandar Kolarov, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott, Ryan McGivern, Micah Richards, Stefan Savi?, Frederic Veseli
MIDFIELDERS (10) – Gareth Barry, Nigel De Jong, Adam Johnson, Andrea Mancini, James Milner, David Silva, Denis Suarez, Yaya Touré, Vladimir Weiss, Shaun Wright-Phillips
FORWARDS (3) – Mario Balotelli, Edin Džeko, John Guidetti
