El Tri gathers for first time

Mexico coach Sven Goran Eriksson will have a team in place for the next three days to work on tactics with an eye towards the Sweden game. This is probably many of the same players who, along with the smattering of Mexicans based in Europe, will be in Columbus for US-Mexico.

So if you are a US supporter and aren't familiar with these names, start getting to know them.

Goalkeepers: Oswaldo Sánchez (Santos), Guillermo Ochoa (America), José de Jesús Corona (Tecos).

Defenders: Juan Carlos Valenzuela (America), Israel Castro (Pumas), Leobardo López (Pachuca), Edgar Dueñas (Toluca), Diego Martínez (Monterrey), Julio Cesar Domínguez (Cruz Azul), Fausto Pinto (Cruz Azul), Edgar Castillo (America), Israel Martínez (San Luis).

Midfielders: Antonio Naelson Sinha (Toluca), Pavel Pardo (America), Luis Pérez (Monterrey), Leandro Augusto (Pumas), Lucas Ayala (Atlas).

Forwards: Alberto Medina (Chivas), Cesar Villaluz (Cruz Azul), Matías Vuoso (Santos), Carlos Ochoa (Chivas), Néstor Calderón (Toluca), Marco Fabián (Chivas).
