[USA-MEXICO] Four players suspended at the Gold Cup for testing positive for clenbuterol are back in the Mexico team that will face the USA Wednesday in Philadelphia. But young Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez won't be in the Tri squad for the game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who has moved over the summer to Corsican club Ajaccio, defender Francisco Rodriguez and midfielders Antonio Naelson “Sinha” and Christian Bermudez were named in the Mexico squad. Only defender Edgar Duenas among the five suspended players was not recalled by coach Jose Manuel de la Torre.

They were later exonerated because they ingested the banned substance accidentally by eating tainted meat.

"Chicharito" and sub Hector Reynoso are the only players who played for Mexico in its 4-2 win over the USA in the 2011 Gold Cup final who are not in the current Mexico squad.

Mexico Roster:
Goalkeepers: Alfredo Talavera (Toluca), Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio, France)
Defenders: Efrain Juarez (Real Zaragoza, Spain), Francisco Rodriguez (VfB Stuttgart, Germany), Hector Moreno (Espanyol, Spain), Carlos Salcido (Fulham, England), Rafael Marquez (New York Red Bulls), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres), Paul Aguilar (Club America)
Midfielders: Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Israel Castro (Cruz Azul), Jesus Zavala (Monterrey), Pablo Barrera (West Ham United, England), Antonio Naelson “Sinha” (Toluca), Andres Guardado (Dep. Coruna, Spain), Christian Bermudez (Atlante)
Forwards: Giovani Dos Santos (Real Santander, Spain), Oribe Peralta (Santos), Omar Arellano (Guadalajara), Javier Aquino (Cruz Azul)
