Mexico Names 20-Man Squad For Friendly Vs. United States

'Chepo' Jose Manuel de la Torre has his team for Mexico's friendly against the United States on August 10 and it has one notable omission. Javier Hernandez has not been named to the team as he recovers from a concussion suffered during preseason training with Manchester United. Even without Chicharito, El Tri are the heavy favorites to defeat the U.S., a month and a half after overcoming a 2-0 deficit to win the Gold Cup final versus their arch-rivals, 4-2.

With Chicharito out, Chepo has just two strikers in the team with Omar Arellano and Oribe Peralta, with Giovani dos Santos supporting him. It is a first-choice squad for Chepo that will once again be led by the young attacking trio of dos Santos, Pablo Barrera and Andres Guardado that led them to Gold Cup glory.

Goalkeepers: Guillermo Ochoa (AC Ajaccio), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca)

Defenders: Paul Aguilar (América), Efraín Juárez (Real Zaragoza), Rafael Márquez (New York Red Bulls), Héctor Moreno (RCD Espanyol), Francisco Javier Rodríguez (VfB Stuttgart), Carlos Salcido (Fulham), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres)

Midfielders: Javier Aquino (Cruz Azul), Pablo Barrera (West Ham United), Christian Bermúdez (Atlante), Israel Castro (Cruz Azul), Andrés Guardado (Deportivo de La Coruña), Antonio Naelson Sinha (Toluca), Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Jesús Zavala (Monterrey)

Forwards: Omar Arellano (Guadalajara), Giovani dos Santos (Tottenham), Oribe Peralta (Santos)
