Kyle Beckerman will make his return to the United States Men's National Team after a short absence for Wednesday's match against Mexico, where he'll be joined by first-choice goalkeeper battler and fellow RSL stalwart Nick Rimando.

Beckerman hasn't played with the national team since November 18, when he played in a 4-1 loss to Ireland (which, we'll note, wasn't his fault at all.)

He withdrew himself from consideration during USMNT duty during Jurgen Klinsmann's January camp, citing a need to remain with Real Salt Lake while the team underwent a considerable transition, both to a new formation and to a side without MLS veterans Nat Borchers, Chris Wingert and Ned Grabavoy, among others.

They'll be playing against Mexico, who will have former RSL defender Carlos Salcedo in the squad.

Goalkeepers (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), William Yarbrough (Club Leon)

Defenders (8): Ventura Alvarado (Club America), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC), Greg Garza (Club Tijuana), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Michael Orozco (Puebla), Brek Shea (Orlando City SC), DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham Hotspur)

Midfielders (6): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Mix Diskerud (New York City FC), Miguel Ibarra (Minnesota United FC), Lee Nguyen (New England Revolution)

Forwards (5): Juan Agudelo (New England Revolution), Julian Green (Hamburg), Jordan Morris (Stanford University), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)
