Mexico U-23 coach Raul "Potro" Gutierrez has named a 26-man roster for his first training camp ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The team includes big names like Carlos Salcedo, Hirving Lozano, and Erick "Cubo" Torres.

Queretaro's Carlos Fierro also makes his return to a youth national team following his move from Chivas in the winter.

Of the surprises, FC Dallas goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez makes the squad after turning down an invite from Jurgen Klinsmann to take part in the United States' January training camp.

Mexico will use this training camp to prepare for the Olympics later this year where El Tri will hope to repeat as gold medalists.
