Reading midfielder Silvana Flores is still waiting to make her first appearance for Mexico at senior level with the player having been an unused substitute for Monica Vergara’s side against Costa Rica this evening.
New Mexican head coach Vergara included Flores in her 26-player squad for this week’s double-header against Costa Rica. The Tricolor defeated the Costa Ricans 3-1 in their first international friendly fixture at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City this evening.
Rebeca Bernal, Katty Martinez and captain Stephany Mayor were all on target for Mexico as they eased to victory over a side who are seven places below them in the FIFA Women’s World Rankings. Head coach Vergara made five changes over the course of the 90 minutes but Reading midfielder Flores remained on the bench. The player will now be hoping to make her debut in Mexico’s second fixture against Costa Rica on Tuesday.
Flores has previously represented Mexico at various youth levels up to Under-20 level. The midfielder was a runner-up at the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 while she was also a member of the Under-20s side which ended as runners-up at the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 tournament in 2019.
After failing to launch her senior club career with both Arsenal and Chelsea, Flores recently joined Reading and the player has been named on the bench for The Royals’ last two Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches.
