[MEXICO] Chepo De la Torre has given the Mexican national team a makeover, bringing in eight players from the Olympic gold-medal team but leaving the New York Red Bulls' Rafael Marquez out of the squad for the World Cup 2014 qualifiers against Costa Rica Sept. 7 and Sept. 11.

Marquez, who is battling an injury to his left calf, was on the Mexico roster for the two June qualifiers against Guyana and El Salvador but did not play.

Only three of the players from the Olympics -- goalie Jose Corona, defender Carlos Salcido and forward Giovani dos Santos -- started in the June qualifiers.

The notable addition from the June squad is veteran midfielder Gerardo Torrado.

Mexico's squad also includes nine of the 11 starters from its 1-0 loss to the USA in their recent friendly.

Mexico Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca), Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio, France)
DEFENDERS (8): Severo Meza (Monterrey), Francisco Javier Rodriguez (VfB Stuttgart, Germany), Hector Moreno (Espanyol, Spain), Hiram Mier (Monterrey), Darvin Chavez (Monterrey), Carlos Salcido (Tigres), Israel Jimenez (Tigres), Jorge Torres (Tigres).
MIDFIELDERS (7): Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Pablo Barrera (Cruz Azul), Javier Aquino (Cruz Azul), Andres Guardado (Valencia, Spain), Angel Reyna (Monterrey), Jesus Zavala (Monterrey), Elias Hernandez (Tigres).
FORWARDS (5): Giovani Dos Santos (Tottenham, England), Oribe Peralta (Santos), Marco Fabian (Guadalajara), Javier Hernandez (Man. United, England), Aldo de Nigris (Monterrey).
