MEXICO CITY -- Javier Hernandez and Andres Guardado highlight Mexico's roster for a friendly against the United States on Wednesday night.
Missing from an otherwise full squad are striker Giovani Dos Santos and defender Carlos Salcido, who are both with Mexico's Olympic team.
Hernandez, who will return to Manchester United for his third season at Old Trafford, has 25 goals in 38 international appearances. Chicharito was tied for second with 12 goals in all competitions for United last season.
The United States is set to announce its roster Sunday for the game at Mexico's Azteca Stadium, but Stoke City announced that new signing Geoff Cameron will be on the U.S. squad.
"It's been frustrating for him not being able to play in the preseason games. And he's got to go back there next week to play for the USA in a game in Mexico," said Stoke's assistant manager David Kemp, according to goal.com.
