Edinson Cavani has been included in Uruguay's squad for its friendly with Mexico next month, which will be overseen by Under-20 coach Fabian Coito.

Cavani has not played for club or country since sustaining a muscle injury in the World Cup last-16 victory over Portugal on June 30.

Though the striker is back in training, he was absent for Paris Saint-Germain's Trophee des Champions win against Monaco and its Ligue 1 victories over Caen and Guingamp.

Uruguay faces Mexico in Houston on September 7 and Cavani has been named as one of the 25 foreign-based players in a squad that will be led by Coito, as Oscar Tabarez is yet to sign a contract extension.
