The Mexican national team will face their counterpart from Bosnia-Herzegovina in an international friendly this Wednesday. It will be El Tri’s first game of 2018 as they continue preparations for this summer’s World Cup.
Headlining the roster is 18-year-old Jonathan González, the young dual-national who has switched his international allegiance from the U.S, to Mexico. González represented the U.S. at the U-17 and U-20 levels before choosing Mexico.
With the game not falling on a FIFA date, Mexico has selected a largely domestically-based roster, with 20 players plying their trade in Liga MX. The remaining three spots are taken up by MLS players: the Dos Santos brothers and Carlos Vela.
The complete 23-man roster is as follows:
Goalkeepers (3): Rodolfo Cota, Jonathan Orozco, Manuel Gibrán Lajud.
Defenders (7): Néstor Araujo, Hugo Ayala, César Montes, Oswaldo Alanís, Edson Álvarez, Luis Rodríguez, Jesús Gallardo.
Midfielders (6): Jorge Hernández, Jonathan González, Víctor Guzmán, Orbelín Pineda, Elías Hernández, Jonathan dos Santos.
Forwards (7): Henry Martín, Rodolfo Pizarro, Alan Pulido, Javier Aquino, Carlos Vela, Jürgen Damm, Giovani dos Santos.
Update: Víctor Guzmán was replaced by Jesús Molina (Monterrey) due to injury
