Giovani dos Santos selected to Mexico’s Confederations Cup roster

Galaxy midfielder Giovani dos Santos will be on quite the international run coming up.

It was announced Thursday that Dos Santos, who is already with Mexico for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers, including Sunday’s tilt with the U.S. at Azteca Stadium, will remain with El Tri for the upcoming Confederations Cup tournament.

Mexico opens the tournament June 18 against Portugal in Russia. The finals are set for July 2. That would take dos Santos out of action for the Galaxy until early July.
