Mexico names 26-man roster for November round of World Cup qualifiers

Mexican national team head coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino has announced his 26-man roster for the decisive November World Cup qualifiers against the United States and Canada.

The upcoming matches are arguably the toughest road trips yet for Mexico, inspiring Martino to call up his most experienced players rather than opt for new tactics.

All Mexicans playing abroad in Europe were named on the roster: Raul Jimenez, Tecatito Corona, Chucky Lozano, Andres Guardado, Hector Herrera and Nestor Araujo.

The head coach also included five players from recent Concacaf Champions League winners Monterrey. Veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa will be present to lead the group. 

The most notable absence to the roster is MLS-based veteran Jonathan Dos Santos, who regularly features for the Mexican side. Neither Tata Martino or Dos Santos have commented on the decision.
