Javier Hernandez among 11 named to El Tri Gold Cup 2015 squad

Real Madrid forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Real Sociedad's Carlos Vela, Villarreal teammates Giovani and Jonathan dos Santos, Malaga's Guillermo Ochoa, Porto's Hector Herrera and Diego Reyes, PSV Eindhoven's Andres Guardado, Espanyol's Hector Moreno, Watford's Miguel Layun and Twente's Jesus Manuel Corona were all called up by the Mexico Football Federation on Friday as El Tri named its Europe-based players for Gold Cup 2015. 

Both Malaga and Real Sociedad confirmed that their respective players, Ochoa and Vela, were called up to Mexico's squad. 

El Tri's manager Miguel Herrera had previously announced that the Gold Cup -- despite the lower quality of teams involved compared to the Copa America -- was a priority, because winning it leads to a playoff against the United States for a place at the Confederations Cup in Russia in 2017.
