Monterrey’s Jonathan Gonzalez was one of 23 players chosen by Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio for their upcoming friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

El Tri will face Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 31 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas in Mexico’s first preparation game ahead of this summer’s 2018 World Cup in Russia.
