LA Galaxy's Uriel Antuna called up to Mexico's Nations League roster

Update, Nov. 13: Jonathan dos Santos has left Mexico's squad after suffering an undisclosed injury, the Mexico national team announced on Wednesday.


Original report, Nov. 11: Mexico national team head coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino has named his roster for the upcoming Concacaf Nations League matches against Panama and Bermuda, and the squad includes two LA Galaxy players.

Midfielder Jonathan dos Santos and winger Uriel Antuna are on a largely youth-laden roster for the upcoming League A, Group B contests. El Tri are in command in the group, three points ahead with a game in hand on their opponents and on the cusp of clinching first place.

The top two group finishers book a ticket to the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, and the winner passage to the semifinal stage in the 2019-20 League A tournament.

Mexico will play Panama in Panama City on Friday before taking on Bermuda in Toluca Nov. 19 to wrap up group stage play.
