Mexico summon Castillo for Ecuador friendly

Mexico summon Castillo for Ecuador friendly

Manchester City striker Nery Castillo was summoned by Mexico for a friendly against Ecuador next week in preparation for World Cup qualifying this month.
Castillo arrived in Mexico on Monday and was training for the last group matches in CONCACAF's third round of qualifying. Mexico needs to at least draw with Honduras on Nov. 19 to be sure of advancing to the regional finals.
Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson left three-time World Cup goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez off the squad that will play against Ecuador in Phoenix on Wednesday. Instead, America goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was named.
