MOST COMMENTED

[GOLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Mexico named its 23-player squad for the Gold Cup. The two-time defending champions will be without their first-team players, currently at the Confederations Cup, but the team includes such players as Olympic gold-medalists Jorge Enriquez and Marco Fabian and Omar Bravo, who played briefly for Sporting Kansas City.

The squad also includes a pair of American-born players, Miguel Ponce and Isaac Brizuela, who expressed interest in playing for the USA, and Cirilo Saucedo, whose mother is American.

In the absence of head coach Jose Manuel de la Torre, who is in Brazil with the "A" team, Salvador Reyes and Raul Gutierrez will coach the team, which begins training on Monday in Mexico City.

    When I read stories like this, it makes me sick!!!! While it appears that Tab Ramos has had some success in incorporating Latin players into the U20's , stories like this show that we have a long way to go in making Hispanic players look first to playing for the US. I certainly don't have a quick answer but improving communiications with the Hispanic soccer community would seem to be a good first step. This isn't rocket science, folks, start talking!!

    James, we look to England for playing style and development and France for coaching courses. Thats great but why dont we look to Brazil, Spain and most recently developmentally succesful Mexico for ideas?? Would make more sense given our player oool. I predict 1/2 Usa born Mexican teams before Usa will have to do something drastic. Look at how many on El Salvador. Their first U20 WC. Your right. Not Rocket Science!!! But this column should say "Historic" somewhere in the title.
