Lozano, Davies headline star-studded group as Gold Cup rosters are announced

By

The final rosters for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup have been announced, and the regional showcase will not be lacking for top talent.

Canadian star Alphonso Davies and Mexico’s Hirving Lozano headline a star-studded field that will also include Costa Rica’s Joel Campbell, Jamaica’s Leon Bailey (Bayer Leverkusen), and Honduran star Alberth Elis.

While Lozano will be considered the headliner, Mexico’s roster offers plenty of other big names, with Hector Herrera, Jesus Corona and Jonathan Dos Santos among those who will be suiting up for El Tri.

Davis will also have plenty of help with Canada, including recent addition Ayo Akinola and Junior Hoilett.

El Salvador’s roster also includes some interesting names, most notably Alex Roldan of the Seattle Sounders. Roldan is one of five players on the Salvadorian roster born in the United States. He’ll be joined by Toronto FC defender Eriq Zavaleta, New Jersey Native Amando Moreno, who plays for USL Championship club New Mexico United, California native Walmer Martinez, another USL standout, and Josh Perez of UD Ibiza.
