[USA-MEXICO] Mexico's 18-player squad for Wednesday's game against the USA in Glendale, Ariz., is dominated by players from Coach Miguel Herrera's former club, Club America, and 2013 Torneo Apertura champion Leon -- 10 between them -- but it also includes five players from Toluca and Cruz Azul even though they have Concacaf Champions League semifinals next week.

Mexico is missing its European-based players, and the only starter of note from the team that beat New Zealand in the World Cup qualifying playoffs with a team of only domestic players is 2013 Concacaf Player of the Year Oribe Peralta, who requested a break following Santos' heavy schedule that includes participation in the Libertadores Cup.

Californian-born Miguel Ponce and Isaac Brizuela, who scored a spectacular goal in Toluca's Concacaf Champions League series with the San Jose Earthquakes, are making a late run to make the Mexico 23, while goalie Moises Munoz, who spent part of his youth living in Northern California, is trying to nail down the third goalkeeping spot.

Mexico Roster:
Goalkeepers:
Alfredo Talavera (Toluca), Moises Munoz (Club America).
Defenders: Rafa Marquez (Leon), Francisco Rodriguez (Club America), Enrique Perez (Atlas), Juan Carlos Valenzuela (Club America), Miguel Ponce (Toluca), Miguel Layun (Club America), Paul Aguilar (Club America), Rogelio Chavez (Cruz Azul).
Midfielders: Juan Carlos Medina (Club America), Jesus Zavala (Monterrey), Marco Fabian (Cruz Azul), Isaac Brizuela (Toluca), Carlos Pena (Leon), Luis Montes (Leon).
Forwards: Alan Pulido (Tigres), Raul Jimenez (Club America).
