Bruno Méndez ended up being called up recently and now Internacional fans don’t know if they can celebrate. The player has a great advantage with the Clube do Povo jersey, as he has been playing in Beira-Rio for some time and it is still seen that he will return to the Colorado team very soon, leaving the Whites hopeful.
The Uruguayan got a chance recently and entered Marcelo Bielsa’s list, being one of eight athletes in Brazilian football selected. Bruno Mendes has been called up to the squad that will play friendlies against Nicaragua on June 14, and against Cuba on the 20th. The matches will be held at the Centenario Stadium, in Montevideo.
This situation, however, could end up hurting Inter very soon. Currently, the Rio Grande do Sul team is one of those quoted to retain the player for the next season, when his contract with Corinthians finish. However, those spotlights on Bruno Mendes could ultimately generate more competition and make it difficult for Colorado to sign him.
Bruno Mendes has been called up to the Uruguay national team
Some of the big names in the Uruguay national team ended up being left out of the list and it was surprising. Goalkeeper Muslera, defender Godin and forwards Cavani and Suarez were not called up for the FIFA date. The coach himself, as soon as he was introduced last month, ended up trying to call up more players he didn’t know much.
“In those months I have produced a list of three players for each position, four in some. And within that group of 33 or 40 players, for this first trial I will choose the least I know. The month of June to get to know the people I know the least, whom I have seen the least.”
