[USA-MEXICO] Real Salt Lake right back Tony Beltran has replaced Brad Evans, who remains sidelined with a calf injury suffered on March 15 against Toronto FC, in the U.S. squad for the match against Mexico Wednesday at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was in attendance for Real Salt Lake's 3-0 win against Toronto FC on Saturday in which Beltran started. Beltran earned two caps for the United States in 2013.

Evans' injury means that Michael Parkhurst will probably start at right back. Beltran would be the third choice behind DeAndre Yedlin.

U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
DEFENDERS (8): DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Clarence Goodson (San Jose Earthquakes), Michael Orozco (Puebla), Michael Parkhurst (Columbus Crew), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC)
MIDFIELDERS (7): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Philadelphia Union), Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
FORWARDS (4): Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC), Julian Green (Bayern Munich), Eddie Johnson (D.C. United), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)
