After starring for PSV in 2017-18, the 22-year-old has been tipped for big things at the global showpiece
Hirving Lozano could be the breakout star of the World Cup, according to team-mate Erick Gutierrez.
Lozano, 22, enjoyed a fine season with Eredivisie giants PSV, scoring 17 league goals and adding 11 assists to help his side to a Dutch title.
Gutierrez believes the attacker could shine in Russia, where Mexico face Germany, Sweden and South Korea in Group F.
“‘Chucky’ [Lozano] could be the revelation player of the tournament. He has grown a lot,” he said on Thursday.

“We practically know each other since we were kids. I know about his capacity. He is very adventurous. He doesn’t care who is in front of him.
“Hopefully he will have a great World Cup and will help Mexico to go far in the tournament.”
Mexico begin their campaign with a clash against Germany in Moscow on Sunday.
