A Gold Cup title in his first big test as Mexico's national team coach would be a feather in the cap of Coach Hugo Sanchez. If that means beating the USA in the final in Chicago, all the better. Revenge for the 2-0 loss to the USA in his Tri coaching debut is certainly on Sanchez's mind,

Like U.S. coach Bob Bradley, Sanchez will have to have to take into account that his Tri will have to play in the Copa America right after the Gold Cup, but he has selected a full-strength squad for the CONCACAF competition in which it opens against Cuba on Friday at Giants Stadium.

Sanchez will have all five European-based players -- Pavel Pardo and Ricardo Osorio of German champion Stuttgart, Carlos Salcido of Dutch champion PSV, Nery Castillo of Greek champion Olympiakos and Rafael Marquez of Barcelona.

The Uruguayan-raised Castillo made his Mexico debut last weekend against Iran. Marquez should be available for the semifinals and final of the Gold Cup, after the end of the Spanish season.

GOLD CUP RECORD:
Appearances: 8
Record: 24 wins, 4 losses, 5 ties

MEXICO ROSTER:
Goalkeepers:  Jose De Jesus Corona (UAG), Guillermo Ochoa (Club America), Oswaldo Sanchez (Santos);
Defenders: Jose Antonio Castro (Club America), Rafael Marquez (Barcelona/SPA), Jose Jonny Magallon (Guadalajara), Ricardo Osorio (Stuttgart/GER), Fausto Pinto (Pachuca), Francisco Rodriguez (Guadalajara), Carlos Salcido (PSV/NED);
Midfielders: Fernando Arce (Morelia), Jose Andres Guardado (Atlas), Jaime Lozano (Tigres), Alberto Medina (Guadalajara), Ramon Morales (Guadalajara), Pavel Pardo (Stuttgart/GER), Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul);
Forwards: Adolfo Bautista (Guadalajara), Cuauhtemoc Blanco (Club America), Jared Borgetti (Cruz Azul), Omar Bravo (Guadalajara), Nery Castillo (Olimpiakos/GRE), Francisco Fonseca (Tigres).
Coach: Hugo SANCHEZ.
