    Head coach Leonatdo Cuellar is taking 20 players to China, including five – goalkeeper Cecilia Santiago; defender Paulina Solis; and midfielders Karla Nieto, Nancy Antonio and Jazmin Aguas – who helped Mexico to a second-place finish at the recently completed 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-Championship.
