Juan Carlos Osorionamed 11-European-based players in his squad of 25 players for Mexico's World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Costa Rica at Azteca Stadium on March 24 and at Trinidad & Tobago on March 28.

El Tri will be without the LA Galaxy's Giovani dos Santos and Porto's Jesus Corona, who are injured. Two former MLS players -- Rafael Marquez and Carlos Salcedo -- were called up.

Players will begin arriving on Sunday in Mexico City and then head into a training camp in Cuernavaca.

Mexico Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Guillermo Ochoa (Granada/ESP), Jose de Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca).
DEFENDERS (7): Carlos Salcedo (Fiorentina/ITA), Diego Reyes (Espanyol/ESP), Rafael Marquez (Atlas), Nestor Araujo (Santos), Hector Moreno (PSV/NED), Oswaldo Alanis (Guadalajara), Miguel Layun (Porto/POR).
MIDFIELDERS (10): Luis Montes (Leon), Jonathan Dos Santos (Villarreal/ESP), Hector Herrera (Porto/POR), Andres Guardado (PSV/NED), Jesus Molina (Monterrey), Jesus Gallardo (UNAM), Luis Reyes (Atlas), Orbelin Pineda (Guadalajara), Elias Hernandez (Leon), Jesus Duenas (Tigres).
FORWARDS (5): Carlos Vela (Real Sociedad/ESP), Jurgen Damm (Tigres), Raúl Jimenez (Benfica/POR), Oribe Peralta (Club America), Javier Hernandez (Bayer Leverkusen/GER).

    Is it me, or are there more players conveniently injured before the Hex?

    I don't think its you R2D2, Gio seemes to virtually always injure a ham or quad, when he's with the LAG and called up for the MNT's Tri; the others, I would think they may be legitimately injured given their season of competition, whether European or Mex based players. It IS perplexing, i.e. the nature of Gio's injuries just before major competition, and I betcha the LAG coaching and training staff will be putting more time in getting him well, a problem Arena & Co faced last year.
