When is Lozano expected to reveal Mexico’s squad for the Copa America?

With Mexico set to participate in the 48th edition of the Copa America, fans are eager for Jamie Lozano’s announcement of Mexico’s call-up for Copa America. 

When will Jamie Lozano announce Mexico’s call-up for Copa America?

In perhaps one of the worst moments for Mexico’s national football team, the Jamie Lozano-coached side is set to participate in the newly expanded Copa America later this year. The nation is set to compete against Jamaica, Ecuador, and Venezuela in Group B of the competition set to be hosted by the United States of America. With Mexico on their third coach in less than two years, all eyes and dreams of 12 million fans rely on Jamie Lozano for Mexico’s call-up for Copa America. The gaffer is expected to submit his final 23-man squad on June 12 raising questions as to who will be included in the final squad list. 

The new coach hasn’t had sufficient time to explore enough options in his nine-match stint at the helm of Mexico and is expected to rely on players with experience while bleeding some youngsters. Experienced regulars like Guillermo Ochoa, Jesus Gallardo, Cesar Montes, Edson Alvarez, Luis Chavez, and Hirving ‘Chucky‘ Lozano are expected to make Mexico’s call-up for Copa America,

while youngsters like Julian Araujo, Julian Quinones, Israel Reyes are making a strong case for themselves. Manager Lozano is expected to submit a provisional squad list on 5 June which will give everybody a better idea of who will be included in Mexico’s call-up for Copa America in June.

A worrying situation for the Mexican national football team

USA beat Mexico to win the CONCACAF Nations League

Mexico has historically been known for the impressive quality of football put on display by the nation. However, in recent years the national side has suffered greatly and their problems were highlighted yet again as Mexico lost 2-0 to the USA in the CONCACAF Nations League final in the March international break. Jamie Lozano will consider himself lucky to have not lost his job considering how his predecessors ‘Tata Martino’ and Diego Cocca were sacked following disappointing campaigns in other competitions. 

With the Mexican side still struggling, Lozano has a massive task on his hands as he carries the weight of dreams of millions of passionate Mexican fans going into Copa America. While Mexico aren’t considered favorites to win the summer tournament in the USA as reigning champions Argentina are on a crusade and Brazil is following the champions closely, El Tri could write an underdog story in the newly expanded Copa America. Despite their issues, Mexico remains one side to closely follow going into the June tournament.
