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.
