Hey look, Santos Laguna is bringing a bunch of dudes to play the Chicago Fire on Saturday. Cool.

Herculez Gomez will miss the match because of national team duty, but goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez and a number of other talented young men will take the Toyota Park field for the friendly.

Last year, the Fire lost to Chivas de Guadalajara 1-0 in front of their home fans. Hopefully things go better this time around.

Let’s go to the roster:

GOALKEEPERS: Miguel Becerra, Oswaldo Sanchez

DEFENDERS: Kenyi Adachi, Oswaldo Alanís, Rafael Figueroa, Aaron Galindo, Luis Alberto Garcia, Cesar Ibañez, Osmar Mares, Carlos Torres Zapata

MIDFIELDERS: Marc Crosas, Alejandro Martínez, Cándido Ramírez, Juan Pablo Rodríguez, Rodolfo Salinas, Walter Gael Sandoval

FORWARDS: Daniel Ludueña, Daniel Guzman, Benjamin Joya, Carlos Parra
