The Mexican Football Federation (Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Asociación) just released the roster for their first matchup of the year, a friendly in Las Vegas vs. an Iceland side that were the fan favorites of Euro 2016.

Not surprisingly, Giovani dos Santos was called up by manager Juan Carlos Osorio. Hopefully Gio can shake off the pre-season rust and earn some playing time.

Mexico National Team Roster:

Goalkeepers: Hugo González (Monterrey), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca), Jesús Corona (Cruz Azul)

Defenders: Hugo Ayala (Tigres), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres), Rafael Márquez (Atlas), Nestor Araujo (Club Santos), Jesús Gallardo (Pumas), Oswaldo Alanís (Chivas Guadalajara), Luis Reyes (Atlas), Jürgen Damm (Tigres), Raúl López (Pachuca)

Midfielders: Jesús Molina (Monterrey), Jesús Dueñas (Tigres), Edson Álvarez (Club América), Orbelín Pineda (Chivas Guadalajara), Érick Gutiérrez (Pachuca)

Forwards: Giovani dos Santos (LA Galaxy), Luis Montes (Club León), Angel Zaldivar (Chivas Guadalajara), Alan Pulido (Chivas Guadalajara), Hirving Lozano (Club Pachuca), Elías Hernandez (Club León)
