Two forgotten stars giving Tuca a selection headache in attack

Julian Quinones and Fernando Fernandez have both struggled for minutes so far this season.

Fernandez has seen just half an hour of action, coming on as a second-half sub in the draws against Veracruz and Santos Laguna.

Quinones has been given even less game time; he’s clocked up a mere 16 minutes on the pitch thanks to cameo appearances against Atlas and Chiapas.

Given the competition for first team places in our attacking unit, both have been forced to settle for game time with the youth squads – and both have impressed. At the time of writing, Quinones has scored five and Fernandez has bagged four (MedioTiempo).

What does the future hold for the two players?

Even though he’s way down the pecking order, at 19-years-old, Quinones has time on his side.

We’d be more worried about the future of Fernandez. The Paraguayan has quality – he bagged 31 league goals for Guarani in 2014 and a further 26 goals in 2015. But since moving to Tigres in January 2016 , he’s scored just once in the league and twice in the Concacaf Champions League.

Will he still be a Tigres player in January? Let us know what you think…
