In 2019, with Gerardo Martino as coach, Mexico became the Concacaf Gold Cup champion. And two years later, El Tri wants to repeat the title also with Tata as coach. On this occasion, the Argentine will not have Javier Hernández, who is marginalized from the National Team after starring in a "sexual party" during a preparation tour.

Martino knows that all eyes will be on what his players do on the field of play, since not only are they the current champions, but the level shown in the last preparation games was not the best and they must reverse that image. For this, the experienced Argentine coach decided to bet on the experience of players who are at a high level in his clubs, such as Henry Martín and Hirving Lozano, and other great promises such as Efraín Álvarez.

Mexico will debut in the competition against a rival to be confirmed, as it comes out of a previous round. The game is scheduled for Saturday, July 10, at AT&T Stadium, from 11:00 p.m.

Mexico's list:

Goalkeepers: Jonathan Orozco, Guillermo Ochoa, Hugo González, Rodolfo Cota and Alfredo Talavera.

Defenders: Johan Vásquez, Jorge Sánchez, Carlos Salcedo, Luis Romo, Osvaldo Rodríguez, Luis Rodríguez, Héctor Moreno, César Montes, Gerardo Arteaga, Néstor Araujo, Kevin Álvarez and Gilberto Sepúlveda.

Midfielders: Carlos Rodríguez, Erick Gutiérrez, Orbelín Pineda, Miguel Layún, Diego Lainez, Andrés Guardado, Héctor Herrera, Jesús Gallardo, Jonathan Dos Santos, Sebastián Córdova, Alan Cervantes, Edson Álvarez, Roberto Alvarado and Erick Aguirre.

Forwards: Alan Pulido, Rodolfo Pizarro, Henry Martín, Hirving Lozano, Raúl Jiménez, Jesús Corona, Uriel Antuna, Efraín Álvarez and Alexis Vega.
