Miguel Angel Ponce and Marco Fabian are among the 20 players called in by Mexico Under-23 coach Luis Fernando Tena for Wednesday's friendly against the United States U-23 national team at FC Dallas Stadium.
Ponce, a Mexican-American left back, and Fabian, his club teammate and a star attacker for Chivas de Guadalajara, highlight the roster, which does not include Olympic-eligible players such as Giovani dos Santos, Jonathan dos Santos or Carlos Vela. The Dos Santos brothers will be with the senior team for its friendly against Colombia at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, which is taking place on the same day as the U-23 match.
Here is the Mexico roster for the friendly with the U.S. U-23s:
