As the saying goes, when Sven-Goran Eriksson is your coach, Sven-Goran Eriksson is your coach. The Mexican national team coach (and occasional puppet on Setanta Sports) is apparently not the most popular man in Mexico at the moment thanks to the inclusion of four foreign-born players in his squad for Jan. 28's friendly with Sweden.
The issue of naturalized players has come up across the globe and eventually FIFA is going to have to put it's foot down on the issue. Perhaps this latest semi-outcry with Mexico will again bring the issue to the forefront.
