MEXICO CITY (AP) – Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez will headline the 23-player squad for defending champion Mexico at the Gold Cup in the United States in June.

Seven European-based players were picked Friday, with veteran defender and World Cup captain Rafael Marquez also included for the June 5-25 tournament against other teams from North and Central America and the Caribbean.

West Bromwich Albion striker Carlos Vela and Barcelona reserve Jonathan Dos Santos are the surprise omissions.

The two players may still be selected in the squad of players mostly aged under 22 that will represent Mexico in the Copa America in July.
