Most of Mexico’s World Cup squad is set, according to a Mexican report, meaning there are precious few slots available for El Tri hopefuls.
Here are the names reported as set for the trip to Brazil. Eleven were on the roster for the April 5 draw against the United States (their names are starred):
Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul)
Alfredo Talavera* (Toluca)
Diego Reyes (Porto)
Rafael Marquez* (Leon)
Hector Moreno (Espanyol)
Francisco Rodriguez* (America)
Miguel Layun* (America)
Paul Aguilar* (America)
Andres Guardado (Bayer Leverkusen)
Juan Carlos Medina* (America)
Carlos Pena* (Leon)
Jose Juan Vazquez (Leon)
Luis Montes* (Leon)
Hector Herrera (Porto)
Isaac Brizuela* (Toluca)
Oribe Peralta (Santos Laguna)
Raul Jimenez* (America)
Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)
Alan Pulido* (Tigres)
Plenty of notable names remain in question for Miguel Herrera. Between the sticks, will Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio) make the cut, or could Moises Munoz (America) or Jonathan Orozco (Monterrey) steal the third slot?
On defense, Juan Carlos Valenzuela (America), Jorge Torres Nilo (Tigres), Enrique Perez (Atlas), Carlos Salcido (Tigres) and Miguel Ponce (Toluca) are notable omissions and the attack force could be without Giovani dos Santos (Villarreal), Aldo de Nigris (Guadalajara) or Marco Fabian (Cruz Azul).
