Assessing the ins, outs from Mexico's squad to face Bosnia and Herzegovina

Time is running out for players to make an impact on Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio as the clock ticks down toward the 2018 World Cup. Thursday saw the squad announced for next week's friendly vs. Bosnia & Herzegovina in San Antonio, Texas, so we asked our writers to react to some of the names included and excluded.

In: Henry Martin

Ex-Tijuana man Henry Martin has been a pleasant surprise so far for America.
Henry Martin's move from Tijuana to America has revived his international career.

As expected, Osorio's introductory squad for 2018 was a mix of old and new. Barred from selecting any players active in Europe, the coach picked a few mainstays including...

Jesus Duenas leads Mexico to semis with thorough performance

Jesus Duenas' mastery in the midfield helped Mexico dominate pace and possession against Honduras.

After a brilliant Gold Cup quarterfinal start for Mexico, which included an early goal from Rodolfo Pizarro, El Tri later shuffled to a 1-0 win against Honduras on Thursday.

Although Mexico appeared destined for another goal or two through its aggressive and creative distribution in the first 45 minutes, the CONCACAF giants failed to sneak another opportunity into the back of the net.

Regardless of the result, El Tri and suspended manager Juan Carlos Osorio clinched a place in the next round of...

Mexico eye future with young and untried Gold Cup squad

"We're here to become champions," Mexico midfielder Jorge "Burrito" Hernandez declared on arrival in San Diego on Tuesday ahead of El Tri's Gold Cup opener against El Salvador on Sunday. 

Mexico almost always goes into this tournament as the favorite and Hernandez's comments are standard for a side that has won three of the past four Gold Cups, but this time things aren't so cut-and-dried for the seven-time champions.

The United States, Costa Rica and Mexico all have weakened squads, but it...

Five things from Mexico's win over Ghana: Duenas is the secret weapon

Midfielder Jesus Duenas is showing Mexico that he deserves a spot on the World Cup roster.

HOUSTON, Tex. -- Mexico's national team started off its road to the Gold Cup with a 1-0 win over Ghana. Here are five things we learned from El Tri's friendly at NRG Stadium.

1. Jesus Duenas will be El Tri's secret weapon

After giving formidable performances in the Liguilla with Tigres in the 2017 Clausura, Jesus Duenas went through a tumultuous spell. Juan Carlos Osorio and his coaching staff saw Duenas as a versatile midfielder who could turn into an important part of the Confederations Cup...

Mexico Hot List: Duenas a force for Tigres, Dos Santos returning to form

Jesus Duenas scored a brace in the first leg of Tigres' 6-1 aggregate semifinal win over Monterrey.

On Tuesday, Juan Carlos Osorio released his 32-man preliminary roster for Mexico's friendlies against Croatia and Ireland. But before the El Tri manager made his announcement, we assessed who was rounding into form ahead of a big summer of international competition.

Warming up

Jesus Duenas, MF, Tigres (Mexico)

Why he's here: Duenas is one of the main reasons why Tigres are in the Liga MX semifinals. Over two legs in last week's quarterfinal series against Clasico Regio rival Monterrey,...

Duenas, Hernandez and Herrera prepare for first Mexico starts

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jesus Duenas, Meliton Hernandez and Eduardo Herrera sat sheepishly alongside Mexico manager Miguel Herrera on Monday in the news conference ahead of Tuesday's friendly against Paraguay in Arrowhead Stadium.

They looked more like they were there to give evidence in court than a trio of players on the eve of arguably the biggest game of their careers, in which all will start. Alongside them, coach Herrera -- true to his persona -- cracked jokes and lightened the mood.

Perhaps the...
