    MEXICO CITY – Under the guidance of head coach Christopher Cuellar, the Mexico under-20 women’s national team opened a two-week long training camp on Monday at the Mexican Football Federation’s High Performance Center.

    The 24-player squad is scheduled to go through daily double sessions and will play preparation matches against yet to be determined opponents on May 29 and June 1.

    Mexico qualified for the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada by finishing as runner-up to the United States at the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship earlier this year.

    The roster is highlighted by goalkeeper Cecilia Santiago, who played three games with the full national team at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany and made eight total appearances at the 2010 and 2012 editions of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

    Also earning inclusion is 19-year-old forward Tanya Samarzich.  The University of Southern California standout scored six goals to share the Golden Boot award with the USA’s McKenzie Meehan at the CONCACAF U-20 competition.
