It's just a friendly, but on Tuesday night in Torreon, Jose "Chepo" Manuel de la Torre may get his biggest test yet as Mexico manager. Will this be Chepo's first loss as coach of El Tri? We'll find out in a few days. What we do know is the list of players that will be at Chepo's disposal.

Tuesday's match will take place at Estadio Corona in Torreon, home ground of Santos Laguna. The local fans have been rewarded with two Santos players on the roster -- striker Oribe Peralta and the return to the national team of veteran keeper Oswaldo Sanchez. Another new call-up of note is Jaguares midfielder Edgar Andrade, who puts on the Mexico jersey for the first time under De la Torre.

What do you think about Chepo's roster? Any players missing that you were hoping to see? Can this group take down Brazil?

See Mexico's full roster listing after the break.
