While the U.S. Men’s National Team is poised to bring in several of its big guns prior to the Gold Cup quarterfinals, Mexico won’t be doing the same.

Manager Juan Carlos Osorio said in a news conference prior to the team’s group stage finale on Sunday against Curacao that he is content with his current selection of players.

“I think this group deserves the opportunity to continue [in the Gold Cup] and experience this tournament and the great responsibility that representing Mexico is,” said Osorio.

Mexico currently sits atop Group C on four points with one match remaining, and El Tri have already booked a place in the next round based on finalized scenarios from Groups A and B.

“[I feel] happy, very optimistic about the group,” said Osorio. “We’re continuing to consolidate a very good group of talented, young players that are the future of Mexican football. That factor, for me personally, is the most gratifying and what I enjoy most in life.”
