Mexican national team coach Jose Manuel de la Torre
, who hasn't played yet for Manchester United this season and could be on the move before the end of the transfer window, and Andres Guardado
for World Cup 2014 qualifiers against Honduras and the USA even though they have been injured.
Chicharito has been bothered by a hamstring injury, and 2012 Olympic hero Oribe Peralta
will likely start in his place in the qualifiers if he isn't ready to go.
Chicharito, whose playing time at Manchester United has
diminished since the arrival of Robin van Persie
, is reportedly being targeted by Tottenham.
Guardado could make his first start of La Liga season
Sunday when Valencia faces Barcelona.
Mexico is 1-0-5 (W-L-T) in the Hexagonal and 6-4-8 overall this year, but Chepo kept his job as head coach after a meeting of Mexican First Division
presidents following the Gold Cup.
The 23-player squad also includes two Argentine-born players, Christian Gimenez
and Damian Alvarez
. European-based stars Guillermo Ochoa
and Carlos Vela
refused to be considered.
