    MEXICO CITY – Club America will be well represented when Mexico visits the United States for an international friendly on April 2 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

    In an announcement made Thursday, 18 players – all from Liga MX clubs – were named to head coach Miguel Herrera’s squad.  From that group, seven play for the Mexico City giant, which Herrera led to the 2013 Clausura title.

    Additionally, three players from Toluca (Isaac Brizuela, Miguel Ponce, Alfredo Talavera) and two from Cruz Azul (Marco Fabian, Rogelio Chavez) were selected, meaning that they will miss their respective CONCACAF Champions League semifinal, first leg matches to be played a day earlier.

    Mexico has a win and a tie in two friendlies this year, knotting Nigeria 0-0 in its last outing on March 5.
