Who is on Mexico’s 2023 Gold Cup roster?

Who is on Mexico's 2023 Gold Cup roster?

Despite finishing third in Nations League, promptly firing their head coach Diego Cocca, Mexico still expects to win the Gold Cup

Interim manager Jaime Lozano will lead El Tri to the Gold Cup with the same squad that lost 3-0 to the United States in the Concacaf Nations League semifinal. Most of the 22-man roster competes in Liga MX, while a few players participate in Europe's top five leagues.

Mexico's roster is strong, with veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa representing El Tri in the tournament for the fifth time. Prior injuries prevented the selection of marquee players Hirving Lozano, Tecatito Corona, and Raul Jimenez. 

A knee problem has also ruled out Chivas winger Alexis Vega. 2019 Gold Cup winner and Vega's club teammate Roberto Alvarado is his replacement. 

Mexico tries to turn around turbulent times

Can Mexico rebound and win their record-setting ninth Gold Cup? The tournament, hosted across the United States and Canada, officially kicks off on June 24 and lasts until July 16.

Let's see if interim manager Lozano can keep the piece among players- two players boycotted the Gold Cup after losing against the USMNT- and convert his role long-term. 

Below is the entire Mexico roster for the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup. Mexico goes head to head with Honduras on June 25 as part of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Group B.
