'Chucky' Lozano headlines Mexico squad; Jimenez, Chicharito left out

MEXICO CITY -- Mexico head coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino has selected a largely inexperienced squad for upcoming CONCACAF Nations League games against Bermuda (Oct. 11) and Panama (Oct. 15), leaving out the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers' Raul Jimenez, Sevilla's Javier Hernandez and Club America's Guillermo Ochoa.

Martino has hinted that the squad's make-up would look have the future in mind and only Nestor Araujo (Celta Vigo), Diego Lainez (Real Betis), Hector Herrera (Atletico Madrid), Hirving Lozano (Napoli) and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona are included from Mexico's Europe-based players.

Fifteen of the 25 players picked by Martino are eligible for the Olympics next summer in Tokyo, with the Argentine coach currently looking for a gradual generational change in the Mexico national team.

Lainez returns to the squad after a period without much playing time for Betis, while Monterrey's Jonathan Gonzalez is also back.

Leon's in-form striker Jose Juan Macias, who has been attracting attention from European clubs, is included and is the only natural No. 9 in the squad.

The Mexico-based players will travel on Sunday from Mexico City to New Jersey, where they will be based before heading to Bermuda on Wednesday.

El Tri defeated a reserve Trinidad and Tobago side 2-0 last Wednesday in Toluca and has been working with the younger group of domestic-based players in midweek mini-camps.

The squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Rodolfo Cota (Leon), Raul Gudino (Chivas), Jose Hernandez (Atlas)

Defenders: Cristian Calderon (Necaxa), Jesus Angulo (Atlas), Carlos Salcedo (Tigres), Nestor Araujo (Celta Vigo), Gerardo Arteaga (Santos Laguna), Jorge Sanchez (America), Alan Mozo (Pumas), Luis Romo (Queretaro), Johan Vasquez (Monterrey)

Midfielders: Sebastian Cordova (America), Jonathan Gonzalez (Monterrey), Rodolfo Pizarro (Monterrey), Roberto Alvarado (Cruz Azul), Diego Lainez (Real Betis), Ivan Rodriguez (Leon), Erick Aguirre (Pachuca), Hector Herrera (Atletico Madrid), Carlos Rodriguez (Monterrey), Uriel Antuna (LA Galaxy), Hirving Lozano (Napoli), Jesus Corona (Porto).

Forwards: Jose Juan Macias (Leon)
