Jose Javier Abella
When it came to choosing my Right Back there was only one choice for me and that was Jose Javier Abella.
Jose Javier Abella currently plays for the Mexican side Santos Laguna. Abella was played an impressive 47 games last season for Santos Laguna as they went on to win the closing stage of the league. He has continued his impressive form in to this season where he has continued as first choice right back and also featured in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Back in 2013 Arbella was a regular to in the Mexican U20s playing all 5 Mexico games. Things have now gone quite on the international front for Abella but it surely cannot be that long before he is a regular international for Mexico.
If I were to describe Abella I would say that he is he has very strong physical ability. It is this ability that suits him well as an attacking full back as he has good pace that helps him going forward and defensively. He also is good in the tackle but I feel he is very good when he is attacking.
The future appears to be very bright for this young full back and he already showcasing him self in the Mexican top flight and also the CONCACAF Champions League. The next step for Abella will be to hold down a place in the national team, which surely cannot be far away.
