[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.
