[HEXAGONAL COUNTDOWN]Rafael Marquez, whose hasn't played a competitive game for Mexico since the 2011 Gold Cup, is among 26 players new coach Victor Manuel Vucetich called up for the final Mexico qualifiers against Panama Oct. 11 in Mexico City and at Costa Rica four days later.

Five players who played in the 2-0 loss to the USA were not called up. They include Angel Reynaand Hector Moreno, who are injured. Also dropped was Francisco Rodriguez, who served as captain for much of former coach Chepo de la Torre's tenure.

Mexico finds itself in fifth place in the Hexagonal behind Panama on total goals, though a win over the Canaleros at Azteca Stadium would likely be enough to claim no worse than fourth place and a playoff against New Zealand in November.

Honduras leads Mexico by three points in the battle for the third Concacaf berth along with the USA and Costa Rica.

Vucetich will have to cut down Mexico's squad to 23 players on game day.

Mexico Roster:
Goalkeepers:Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio, France), Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca).
Defenders:Severo Meza (Monterrey), Hiram Mier (Monterrey), Rafael Marquez (Leon), Jonny Magallon (Leon), Miguel Layun (Club America), Hugo Ayala (Tigres), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres), Carlos Salcido (Tigres).
Midfielders:Gerardo Torrado  (Cruz Azul), Christian Gimenez (Cruz Azul), Jesus Zavala (Monterrey), Luis Montes (Leon), Carlos Pena (Leon), Isaac Brizuela (Toluca), Lucas Lobos (Tigres), Fernando Arce (Tijuana), Marco Fabian (Guadalajara), Javier Aquino (Villarreal, Spain), Giovani Dos Santos (Villarreal, Spain).
Forwards:Javier Hernandez (Manchester United, England), Oribe Peralta (Santos), Raul Jimenez (Club America), Aldo de Nigris (Guadalajara).
