Osorio reveals Mexico Copa America Centenario roster

Mexico national team coach Juan Carlos Osorio has unveiled his squad for the 2016 Copa America Centenario, with star players Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos missing.

El Tri were placed in Group B alongside Jamaica, Uruguay and Venezuela at the tournament finals, but they are still expected to make it through to the next stage.

With the 2016 Summer Olympics also in mind, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio has announced his 23-man squad for the 2016 Copa America Centenario tournament.

There have been some surprises as the likes of Candido Ramirez and Yasser Corona made the cut, but star men Giovani dos Santos and Carlos Vela miss out.

And while the LA Galaxy forward has rejected a chance to represent the Mexico soccer team, it was coach Juan Carlos Osorio who decided to spare the Real Sociedad hotshot.

Their absence is unlikely to be such a major issue considering that the boss can still count on Javier Hernandez, Oribe Peralta and Raul Jimenez.

The Mexico squad will travel to the United States on 26 May, where they will face Paraguay (May 28) and Chile (June 1) in their final warm-up games.

Mexico Copa America squad:

Goalkeepers: Alfredo Talavera (Toluca), Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Guillermo Ochoa (Malaga);

Defenders: Paul Aguilar (America), Nestor Arujo (Santos), Diego Reyes (Real Sociedad), Hector Moreno (PSV), Yasser Corona (Queretaro), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres), Miguel Layun (Porta), Rafa Marquez (Atlas), Jesus Molina (Santos);

Midfielders: Hector Herrera (Porto), Jesus Duenas (Tigres), Andres Guardado (PSV), Carlos “Gullit” Pena (Chivas);

Forwards: Jurgen Damm (Tigres), Hirving Lozano (Pachuca), Jesus “Tecatito” Corona (Porto), Javier Aquino (Tigres), Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez (Bayer Leverkusen), Raul Jimenez (Benfica), Oribe Peralta (America).
