[MEXICO-USA] Mexico coach Javier Aguirre rewarded El Tri's heroes for the 5-0 dismantling of the USA in the Gold Cup final, calling up all but two starters for the Aug. 12 showdown with the USA in World Cup 2010 qualifying. Barcelona star Rafael Marquez was one of eight players in the 20-players squad who played last season in Europe.

Goalkeepers: Guillermo Ochoa (Club America), Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul).
Defenders: Efrain Juarez (UNAM), Jose Castro (Tigres), Rafael Marquez (Barcelona, Spain), Jonny Magallon (Guadalajara), Ricardo Osorio (Stuttgart, Germany), Aaron Galindo (Guadalajara), Carlos Salcido (PSV, Netherlands), Oscar Rojas (Club America).
Midfielders: Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Israel Castro (UNAM), Andres Guardado (Deportivo Coruna, Spain), Cuauhtemoc Blanco (Chicago Fire, USA).
Forwards: Alberto Medina (Guadalajara), Giovani Dos Santos (Tottenham, England), Nery Castillo (Shakhtar Donetsk, Ukraine), Carlos Vela (Arsenal, England), Miguel Sabah (Morelia), Guillermo Franco (unattached).
