El Salvador team profile for the CONCACAF Gold Cup

El Salvador team profile: key players, roster, coach for 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup

June 5, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Los cuscatlecos have never made it past the Quarterfinals in the Gold Cup. Will they finally reach the final four this time around?

What is El Salvador's record in the CONCACAF Gold Cup?

El Salvador's National Team has played 10 of the 14 previous editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The last time in which they failed to play this tournament took place in 2005. The Central American side has never won the tournament, with their best result being four appearances in the Quarterfinal stage of the competition. Curiously, the 2017 edition ended for them in that stage, with the USMNT sending them home after a 2-0 win.

What is El Salvador's roster for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup?

Goalkeepers: Henry Hernández, Kevin Carabantes, Óscar Pleitéz.

Defenders: Xavier García, Alexander Mendoza, Bryan Tamacas, Roberto Domínguez, Juan Barahona, Iván Mancía, Jonathan Jiménez, Rubén Marroquín.

Midfielders: Jaime Alas, Andrés Flores, Darwin Cerén, Gerson Mayén, Óscar Cerén, Narciso Orellana, Marvin Monterroza, Santos Ortiz, Diego Coca.

Strikers: Nelson Bonilla, David Rugamas, Juan Carlos Portillo.

Who are El Salvador's key players for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup?

Nelson Bonilla – He's the attacking reference for Los Cuscatlecos in this competition. He has scored 14 goals in 40 caps for El Salvador, and at 28 years of age, he is still seen as the best striker of his generation, especially if Rodolfo Zelaya keeps getting snubbed.

Jaime Alas – One of the most experienced players in this roster, Alas will try to show why he has earned 67 caps with Los Cuscatlecos. Alas is the cornerstone of El Salvador's midfield, and his experience will come in handy to try and escape from Group B and into the next round.

Xavier García – García is also one of the most experienced players in El Salvador's squad, with 67 caps for the center back. This footballer plays for his country's FAS, and his leadership will help his coach boss around all of his fellow defenders.

Who is El Salvador's coach?

Carlos de los Cobos – The Mexican coach is back for a second term as El Salvador's tactician, following his three-year stint during the previous decade (2006-2009). De los Cobos has won seven out of his nine games since he returned to Los Cuscatlecos' dugout, but keeping that impressive streak will not be easy considering the opposition he will face in Group C of the tournament.
