El Salvador will play in their twelfth Gold Cup and will try to make it past the quarterfinals, their best participation in the tournament to date. So far in 2021 the team coached by Hugo Perez has only lost once in 2021 and have won 5 games in the lead up to the tournament.

El Salvador will feature Darwin Cerén who will play in his 5th Concacaf Gold Cup and will captain the team in a tough Group A. Marvin Monterroza will also be an important piece of the midfield for El Salvador.

Group A features tournament favorite Mexico and the always dangerous Trinidad and Tobago side. El Salvador will want to fight for that second spot to get to the next round. Here is their 23-man roster for the Gold Cup.
