Mexico will start their preparation for Brazil 2014 on Wednesday, January 29 against South Korea. The game will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio at 9 p.m. ET.

The Asian side will not travel with some of its best footballers, such as Ji Dong-Won, Son Heung-Min, Hong Jeong-Ho and Ki Sung-Yueng, since it is not a FIFA date.

Although El Tri was in the same situation, coach Miguel Herrera managed to cap Diego Reyes, who currently plays for Porto.

The 21-year-old centre-back is not getting much playing time with the Eagles, which is in great part the reason why he was able to join the team.

Although this could be a nonsense game to many, it actually gives Herrera the opportunity to assess some players who he hadn't called before, like Alan Pulido, Jorge Torres Nilo and Jesus Corona.

El Piojo's side needs to have a strong base of local players because they will play more games together.

There is only one FIFA date in the next five months, which means that the footballers playing overseas won't make it to the other friendly matches.

Let's take a look at Mexico's line up for the upcoming game.
