  1. I’ll be pretty disappointed if Llanez gets called in over players that are actually playing for their clubs or even for their youth teams. He’s effectively not playing or even training at all (not criticizing his reasons, as family is more important than a job, but it is the reality), and calling a player up like that just because he has a reputation of being talented would be a real slight to other players in a rich crop of young attacking talent who are actually training and grinding and working for a call up.
