USA-Mexico: Arriola released to return to D.C. United

Paul Arriola, who started in the USA's 2-0 loss to Brazil on Friday, was released to return to MLS's D.C. United, which faces Minnesota United on Wednesday, and won't play in Tuesday's friendly against Mexico in Nashville.

John Brooks was also released to return to German club Wolfsburg. Their departures leave only four U.S. players in camp who played in the 2016-17 Hexagonal: DeAndre Yedlin, Kellyn Acosta, Bobby Wood and Gyasi Zardes.

On Monday, Mexico announced that Guadalajara midfielder Orbelin Pineda had withdrawn from its squad because of an injury and forward Raul Jimenez had returned to Wolves in England.

Previously, Guillermo Ochoa, Chucky Lozano and Erick Gutierrez all returned to their European teams. The moves leave only one European-based player -- Oswaldo Alanis (Spain's Real Oviedo) -- in the team.
