THUMB ONLY - Dos Santos brothers - Mexico - WC2018 ad

Will the LA Galaxy duo of Giovani dos Santos and Jonathan dos Santos be part of Mexico’s roster at this summer’s FIFA World Cup?


El Tri coach Juan Carlos Osorio has yet to name the group he’s taking to Russia, but FOX is banking on the dos Santos brothers being part of Mexico’s roster.


The network, which holds English-language television rights in the United States, feature them in an advertisement that details Mexico's “curse of the fifth game,” about the team's struggles in the knockout stages.


Wearing green blazers with the FMF crest, both dos Santos brothers are shown walking off a plane in Moscow.

Of course, history is on their side. Each has regularly featured for Mexico, with Gio making 102 appearances and Jona being capped 29 times. Both did miss out on recent friendlies against Iceland and Croatia in March with hamstring injuries.
