Mexico selects all-domestic squad

There are no European-based players on the Mexico squad that will take on New Zealand in the first leg of the World Cup qualifying playoff with New Zealand.

New El Tri coach Miguel Herrera only selected players who play their club football in Mexico, and included 10 players from his Club América in a roster unveiled Friday.

Left out of the squad were Javier Hernández of Manchester United, as well as Giovani dos Santos and Javier Aquino of Villarreal.

Only goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera was added to the squad that beat Finland in a friendly on Wednesday. Goalkeeper Jonathan Orozco is out of the squad as he deals with an injury.

Mexico hosts New Zealand in an inter-confederation playoff Nov. 13. Herrera has until Nov. 5 to call up players for the second leg in New Zealand, set for Nov. 20.

"It is not that they are bad, they are very good players, but the trip is very taxing and arriving on (Nov.) 7, 8 or 9 to play on the 13th, they won’t finish adapting to the situation that we are looking for," Herrera said Wednesday following a 4-2 win against Finland in San Diego. "That is what has us practically decided against bringing anyone (from Europe)."

The full squad:

Goalkeepers: Jesus Corona (Cruz Azul), Moises Muñoz (América), Alfredo Talavera (Toluca)

Defenders: Juan Carlos Valenzuela (América), Hiram Mier (Monterrey), Rafa Márquez (León), Maza Rodríguez (América), Miguel Layún (América), Paul Aguilar (América), Edwin Hernández (León), Adrián Aldrete (América), Juan Carlos Medina (América), Miguel Ángel Herrera (Pachuca)

Midfielders: Rodrigo Salinas (Morelia), Luis Montes (León), Carlos Peña (León), Luis Ángel Mendoza (América), Jesús Molina (América), Sinha (Toluca)

Forwards: Oribe Peralta (Santos Laguna), Alonso Escoboza (Santos Laguna), Raúl Jiménez (América), Aldo de Nigris (Guadalajara)
