thumbnail Hello,

Chepo has called in the old guard to help out after his side could manage only a goalless draw at home to Jamaica

Mexican national team coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre has named his 23-man squad for the upcoming matches against Honduras and the United States.

Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa of Ajaccio in France is recalled, as is veteran Atlas forward Omar Bravo. Leon Defender Jonny Magallon is also in the squad, with Chepo apparently looking to older heads to turn around the form which saw El Tri draw against Jamaica in the Azteca last month.

Cirilo Saucedo, Darvin Chavez, Diego Reyes, Paul Aguilar, Fernando Arce, Marco Fabian, and Aldo di Nigris have all been dropped from the squad.

No members of reigning Liga MX champion Tijuana were included in the squad.

Full Squad:

GOALKEEPERS: Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio), Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca)

DEFENDERS: Severo Meza (Monterrey), Jonny Magallon (Leon), Francisco Javier Rodriguez (America), Hector Moreno (Espanyol), Hugo Ayala (Tigres) Diego Reyes (America), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres)

MIDFIELDERS: Carlos Salcido (Tigres), Jesus Zavala (Monterrey), Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Jesus Molina (America), Hector Herrera (Pachuca), Javier Aquino (Villarreal), Andres Guardado (Valencia), Angel Reyna (Pachuca)

FORWARDS: Giovani Dos Santos (Mallorca), Oribe Peralta (Santos Laguna) Javier Hernández (Manchester United), Omar Bravo (Atlas), Raúl Alonso Jiménez (América)
