Carlos Vela and Jonathan Dos Santos are the surprise omissions from Mexico's Gold Cup squad.

West Bromwich Albion striker Vela and Barcelona reserve Dos Santos were omitted from a 23-man squad for the tournament which takes place in the United States in June.

The two players may still be selected in the squad of players mostly aged under 22 that will represent Mexico in the Copa America in July.

Javier Hernandez is the headline pick for the defending champion, fresh from helping Manchester United win its 19th league title at the weekend.

Seven European-based players were picked Friday, with veteran defender and World Cup captain Rafael Marquez also included for the June 5-25 tournament against other teams from North and Central America and the Caribbean.
