With few big names in its squad, Mexico could find it hard to make it out of its World Cup group.
Mexico scored only seven goals in 10 qualifying games, but broke through under new coach Miguel Herrera. Herrera, the fourth Mexico coach in two months, used only players based in Mexico's domestic league.
Defender Rafael Marquez and goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa have been selected by Mexico coach Jose Manuel De la Torre for exhibition games in the United States against Paraguay and Venezuela.
A dispute between top players and the Mexico Football Federation has escalated, with the governing body saying it will not bow to demands by 13 players who are threatening to boycott upcoming games.
Rafael Marquez was released Saturday from the final two seasons of his contract with Barcelona, a move that allowed the 31-year-old Mexican defender to join former teammate Thierry Henry with Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls.
