Joining the Mexican team are standouts Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez (Manchester United, England), Giovanni dos Santos (Racing Santander, Spain), and Carlos Salcido (Fulham, England).

    Its still odd getting used to another national team using the US as a "home" location. Its too bad the FMF doesn't take it a step further and "share" with the USMNT players like Vela, Dos Santos, Torrado, Chicharito and Ochoa. I'm also shocked that the FMF has not demanded the inclusion on the roster of the greatest portero (GK)in the history of Mexican futbal, Oscar Perez. {laughing}

    Hola mi amigo Ric, my typonese caught up with me. Humor me with my fantasy of putting together a combined US/Mexico squad that would kick ass against others, I know its against the FIFA rules but damn would make for a cool "friendly".
