MEXICO CITY - Mexico coach Miguel Herrera yesterday announced his 23-man squad for the World Cup, with the inclusion of veteran defender Carlos Salcido perhaps the biggest surprise.

Tigres player Salcido, 34, who featured at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, had not previously been involved with El Tri since Herrera took over as coach last year.

The majority of the squad are based at home, including former Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez, now of Leon, who will be featuring at his fourth consecutive World Cup finals.

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez of Manchester United is the best known European-based player in Herrera's squad, which does not feature Javier Aquino of Villarreal or Carlos Vela of Real Sociedad.
