Chivas of Guadalajara midfielder Carlos Salcido - who received a surprise call up into the 23-man World Cup roster for Mexico - was once again called up by Miguel Herrera for the September friendly matches against Chile and Bolivia in the United States. These matches will serve as a farewell for Salcido as he has decided to retire from international football. 


Salcido made his first Mexican National Team appearance 10 years ago in 2004 when he was 24 years of age. He has gone on to participate in three FIFA World Cups (2006, 2010, and 2014) as well as three CONCACAF Gold Cups (2005, 2007, and 2011). He was also part of the historic Mexican Olympic team that won the Gold Medal in the 2012 London Games. 


Salcido made the announcement via a press conference held today at the Chivas training center alongside club directors Francisco  Palencia and Rafael Puente Jr. 

"I'm here to thank all of the coaches and teammates that i've had over the years. today i announce my complete retirement from the national team"
