Mexico U19s confirmed for Dallas Cup

Selección de fútbol Sub-19 de Mexico, the Mexican under-19 national team, has confirmed participation in the Gordon Jago Super Group at the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXIII in April. The Dr Pepper Dallas Cup will mark the first steps in preparation for the 2013 Under-20 FIFA World Cup. The new golden generation of Mexican talent, including the Under-17 2011 World Cup Champions, eagerly moves on to FIFA under-20 competitions.

"To have the top young talent of Mexican soccer at this year’s Dr Pepper Dallas Cup will be a great attraction to our many Hispanic soccer fans as the team plays against the caliber of top professional clubs that will be taking part in this year’s tournament," Gordon Jago said.

Current Mexican stars Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Gio Dos Santos and Carlos Vela all played in past Dallas Cups. Mexico’s under-19 national team joins Manchester United, Eintracht Frankfurt, UANL Tigres, Paris Saint-Germain, Boca Juniors and Everton FC as teams already announced as part of the Gordon Jago Super Group.
