Juan Carlos Osorio has selected his Mexico roster for El Tri's upcoming World Cup qualifiers against El Salvador and Honduras.

The 25-man roster is led by the in-form Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and the notable return of Malaga goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

On the other hand, Rafael Marquez and Giovani Dos Santos are not on the roster through injury.

In defense, the only real surprise is with Pumas UNAM player Luis Fuentes. Also joining Fuentes from Pumas is midfielder Alejandro Castro, who makes his return to El Tri after a two-year absence.
