Mexico has announced their squad for the 2019 CONCACAF Women’s Championship. The team that recently won the Gold Medal in the Central American games by beating Costa Rica 3-1 in the final will be once again led by Charlyn Corral, star player of Levante.

Mexico will be in Group A along with the United States, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago. All the Group Stage matches will be played in Cary, North Carolina. Mexico will open against the United States before facing Trinidad and Tobago and finishing off against Panama.
