The Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021 feature another intriguing football tournament this month as a select set of international teams battle it out for the coveted gold medal. Mexico have named their squad for the competition and will face a series of intense challenges before they can write their names into the history books this year.

The North American footballing giants enjoyed their first taste of success at the Olympics in 1968, where they secured a fourth-place finish. Mexico have grown in stature as a sporting nation since the turn of the century and secured a stunning victory at the 2012 Olympics.

El Tri have been regulars at the World Cup and have also named a squad for the CONCACAF Gold Cup this month. Their squad at the Olympics is filled to the brim with talented under-23 starlets, with a few experienced names playing key roles in their camaign.

Mexico have been drafted into a fairly difficult group at the Tokyo Olympics 2021 and will have to fight France and Japan for a place in the knock-out stages. The Mexican outfit can pack a punch on its day and its lethal counter-attacking setup could potentially work wonders this summer.

Mexico's experienced goalkeeping icon Guillermo Ochoa is captaining his side at the Olympics and will be intent on winning the goal medal this summer. Ochoa has been exceptional for Mexico over the years and made a name for himself with a series of brilliant performances in the 2014 World Cup.

With their 36-year-old captain stepping up between the sticks, Mexico can afford to field a relatively young defensive line at the Tokyo Olympics. The likes of Cesar Montes and Vladimir Lorona are rising stars in Mexico and will want to make an impression in the competition.

Mexico have never been short on attacking talent and the likes of Diego Lainez and Alexis Vega will be keen to make the most of their opportunities this summer. The experienced Henry Martin has also been given a chance in Mexico's colours and is set to lead the line for his country.
