Juan Carlos Osorio has released his 40-man preliminary roster ahead of the Copa America Centenario, which will take place across the United States from June 3-26.

The roster includes a group of World Cup veterans and youngsters, with the highlighted returns of LA Galaxy forward Giovani dos Santos and Malaga goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

Juan Carlos Osorio has until May 20 to cut the list down to 23. The rules, however, state Mexico can make injury-related changes up until the start of the tournament on June 3.
