Chivas USA's Torres joins Real Madrid loanee Chicharito in Mexico squad

Mexico boss Miguel Herrera has named a list of five players outside the Liga MX for upcoming friendlies with Honduras and Panama.

El Tri take on the Hondurans in Chiapas on October 9 and Panama in Queretaro three days later and will be accompanied by a handful of players based outside of the country.

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez, who is on loan at Real Madrid from Manchester United, has been selected as has Chivas USA striker Erick Torres who has netted 14 MLS goals this season while on loan from Guadalajara.

Other 'extranjeros' (foreigners) in Herrera's squad include Malaga goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, Villarreal's Rayo Vallecano loanee Javier Aquino and FC Porto midfielder Hector Herrera.

Torres made his debut for Mexico earlier this month in the 1-0 friendly win over Bolivia in Denver, playing a full 90 minutes for El Tri.
