[MEXICO] In its first game since its 0-0 tie with the USA in World Cup 2014 qualifying, Mexico faces Peru Wednesday at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. The Tri will be without its European-based players and players on Concacaf Champions League finalists Monterrey and Santos, but the 20-player squad Chepo de la Torre brought to San Francisco includes Pablo Barrera, who hasn't play for Mexico since August 2012,  and a pair of newcomers, Gerardo Flores (Cruz Azul) and Luis Montes (Leon).

Barrera, who hasn't played for Mexico since its 1-0 loss to the USA in friendly at Azteca Stadium, is one of four players called up from recently crowned Copa MX champion Cruz Azul.

Only two starters -- defenders Diego Reyes and Jorge Torres Nilo -- from the recent 0-0 tie with the USA in Hexagonal play are with the team.

The game will be Mexico's last until it faces Nigeria May 31 in Houston and then plays three Hexagonal matches at Jamaica and Panama and at home against Costa Rica before heading to Brazil for the Confederations Cup.

Mexico Roster:
Goalkeepers: Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca)
Defenders: Francisco Javier Rodriguez (Club America), Diego Reyes (Club America), Hugo Ayala (Tigres), Israel Jimenez (Tigres), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres), Gerardo Flores (Cruz Azul), Efrain Velarde (UNAM)
Midfielders: Gerardo Torrado (Cruz Azul), Jesus Molina (Club America), Carlos Pena (Leon), Hector Herrera (Pachuca), Pablo Barrera (Cruz Azul), Javier Cortes (UNAM), Luis Montes (Leon)
Forwards: Omar Bravo (Atlas), Raul Jimenez (Club America), Rafael Marquez Lugo (Chivas), Angel Reyna (Pachuca)
