Giovani, Jonathan Dos Santos out for upcoming Mexico friendlies


Mexico will be without the services of both Giovani and Jonathan Dos Santos for their upcoming friendlies against Iceland and Croatia.

The team announced Sunday night that both of the Galaxy players will miss out on the friendlies, which take place on March 23rd and 27th.

Giovani had already been excluded from the Mexico squad due to an injury suffered in the Galaxy’s 2-1 loss to New York City FC back on March 11th. Jonathan suffered an hamstring injury last Friday with the Galaxy in their training session, despite having a bye week.
