2017 Gold Cup Draw: Mexico to play El Salvador, Curaçao, and Jamaica

Soccer: Gold Cup-Final-Jamaica at Mexico Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Mexico has been drawn together with El Salvador, Curaçao, and Jamaica at this summer’s Gold Cup.

Mexico come into the tournament as defending champions after winning their record seventh Gold Cup in 2015.

Juan Carlos Osorio's team will meet El Salvador in their first match of Group C, which takes place at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday, July 9.

Curaçao looks like the most accessible team in the group for Mexico when they play at Sports Authority Field in Denver on Thursday, July 13.

Jamaica, who played Mexico in the final of the last Gold Cup, will be El Tri's final opponent and they will play on Sunday, July 24 in San Antonio, Texas.

Elsewhere, Honduras, Costa Rica, French Guinea, and Canada make up what is arguably the tightest group in Group A, while the United States National Team is set to take on Panama, Martinique, and Nicaragua/Haiti in Group B.

Prior to competing in this year’s tournament, Mexico will travel to Russia to take part in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. It is widely expected Mexico will field a second-string side at the Gold Cup.
