U.S. Men's National Team

Mexico announces roster for friendly vs. USA


Rafael Marquez, Giovani Dos Santos, Andres Guardado and Guillermo Achoa headline a strong Mexican roster that will face the U.S. national team in a friendly in Houston on Wednesday.

Here is the full Mexican roster:

GOALKEEPERS: Guillermo Ochoa (Club América), Luís Ernesto Michel (CD Guadalajara), Moisés Muñoz (Morelia)

DEFENDERS: Rafael Márquez (FC Barcelona / SPA), Carlos Salcido (PSV Eindhoven / HOL), Johnny Magallón (CD Guadalajara), Fausto Pinto (Pachuca), Israel Castro (Pumas UNAM), Oscar Rojas (América)

MIDFIELDERS: Pavel Pardo (VFB Stuttgart / GER), Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Francisco Arce (Santos Laguna), Andrés Guardado (Deportivo la Coruna / SPA), Antonio Naelson (Toluca)

FORWARDS: Giovani Dos Santos (FC Barcelona / SPA), Carlos Vela (Osasuna), Juan Carlos Cacho (Pachuca), Adolfo Bautista (Jaguares de Chiapas), Antonio de Nigris (Ankaraspor / TUR)

As expected, Mexico coach Hugo Sanchez will be fielding a very strong squad. We are still waiting on the U.S. roster, but you shouldn’t expect a full-strength roster from Bob Bradley, who will be looking to leave some players in Europe who are either new to their clubs or unsettled at their clubs.

    i think its gonna be i good gae between the young players… to bad guardado and castillo are out r they would of balled it up…. and theres no way usa can get past guillermo ochoa since donavan thinks he’ll scorefist… no chance and no game


  • luis sanchez

    The tide has changed in Aztec town, and not only do you see fresh legs but also have huge talant on a international level on this Mexican team. This team is unique, fast,hungry,and agressive so bring it US, you can’t ride this Green tide.

    Even though that i agree mexico always loses to USA in american soil.. Mexico still has a more dominant team.. They can at least beat teams from Europe… Which the United States can never do.. And Who is always ranked higher???? Thats an easy question MEXICO!!


  • yayo

    usa all around from keeper to forward can not compare to mexico. the reason why usa has come out with a victory is because mexico plays with anger and they don’t concentrate on soccer. but somehow they are coming along and hope they come out with a voctory. p.s. check the stats of whoa has more wins against each other


  • abraham coria

    its true that usa always beats MEXICO in american soil but what about when they play in mexican soil..?? Who wins?? MEXICO of course and our national team is a way better all around team and im confident in that we will beat the GRINGOS here in there home field 3-1
