[WORLD CUP 2014 COUNTDOWN] Mexico coach Miguel Herrera, who went without any of El Tri's European-based players for the World Cup qualifying playoffs, has called in eight "Europeos" for the March 5 friendly against Nigeria in Atlanta.

World Cup 2014 qualifying appearances:
GP PLAYER (TEAM)
16 Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)
14 Andres Guardado (Bayer Leverkusen)
12 Giovani dos Santos (Villarreal)
12 Hector Moreno (Espanyol)
11 Javier Aquino (Villarreal)
5 Hector Herrera (Porto)
4 Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio)
4 Diego Reyes (Porto)

Herrera, who took over El Tri, first on an interim basis, after Mexico dropped to fourth in the final Hexagonal standings, recently returned from a whirlwind tour of Europe where he met with many of Mexico's stars.

Five of the players had started in the USA's 2-0 win over Mexico in Columbus. For the playoff series against New Zealand, Herrera, Mexico's fourth coach in five qualifiers, went solely with Mexican-based players, the majority from Club America, which he coached.

The one player not returning for the game against Nigeria will be Real Sociedad's Carlos Vela, who has been at odds with the Mexican federation and did not take part in qualifying.
