Mexico chiefs to meet over Eriksson future

October 21, 2008

MEXICO CITY, October 21 (National team) - The secretary general of the Mexican Football Federation has revealed the future of coach Sven-Goran Eriksson will be decided after their World Cup qualifier against Honduras next month.

Mexico need at least a draw from the match on November 19 to advance to the final round of the CONCACAF qualifying zone.

Mexico won their opening three games in Group Two, all of which were at home, but a subsequent 1-0 defeat in Jamaica and 2-2 draw with Canada has delayed their progression and turned the spotlight on Eriksson's performance in the role.

Femexfut secretary general Decio de Maria said: "There is full support for this process of the national team and we'll meet again after this round of the qualifiers.

"We are focused on the Honduras match, completing this round and making it to the next one.

"We are united in this goal. We are aware of how the recent matches went. We are all demanding the progression of the national team."
