Goalkeeper Sebastian Jurado leads the way in the latest U-23 call-up for the Mexico national team. Like the senior team, the U-23s will hold a training camp from the 10th to the 13th of February in he Centro de Alto Rendimiento (CAR). Jurado, who has become one of the key prospects in Liga MX after gaining the starting job in Veracruz, is getting his first call-up.

This is the second call-up list from new coach Jaime Lozano. In January, Lozano had his first call-up for two friendlies against Denmark’s U-23 team. Mexico lost the first game by a score of 1-0 and then came out victorious in the second by a score of 2-1, with 2 goals by Chivas’s Jesus Godinez, who wasn’t called up this time around.
