Wolves star Jimenez in demand

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has been called up by Mexico for their friendlies against Chile and Paraguay.

The 14-goal top scorer has been selected in Gerardo Martino’s 29-man squad for the two friendlies, which take place in California later this month.

Mexico host Chile in the Soccu Stadium in San Diego on Friday, March 22 (8.15pm, 3.15am UK time) and entertain Paraguay at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara four days later (8pm, 3am UK time).

Jimenez will be back for Wolves’ return to Premier League action at Burnley on Saturday, March 30 (3pm).

The 27-year-old has featured for his country four times since his loan move to Wolves in a total of 70 caps, scoring 15 goals.

He netted in a 4-1 defeat to Uruguay in Houston in September and in a 3-2 home win against Costa Rica in San Nicolas on October.

Jimenez was then twice on the losing side, 1-0 at home to Chile at La Corregidora, Querétaro City, in October then 2-0 away to Argentina at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes, Cordoba in November.
