D.C. United's Perry Kitchen replaces Michael Orozco on U.S. squad

D.C. United midfielder Perry Kitchen has been added to the United States squad to face Mexico, replacing Michael Orozco.

Kitchen, 23, earned his first cap in February when he appeared as a substitute against Panama.

He returns to the national team after scoring twice in D.C.'s 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls on Saturday.

Orozco was named to the U.S. squad on Sunday, but he will not join up with the team after discussions with his Mexican club Puebla, which faces a stiff challenge to avoid relegation with four games remaining in the Liga MX season.

The U.S. takes on Mexico in a friendly on Wednesday night in San Antonio, Texas.

The full squad:

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