Sven Goran Eriksson mania invades Mexico

It is true, Sven became Mexico's ninth foreign head coach on Tuesday. To be honest, I support the decision, I just hope he gets the victories he could not get with England.

I positive Sven will excel in Mexico, he has a natch on eyeing new talent and will not favor any players as only has ever played under him.

Being the coach of Mexico is a challenging position, and stressful, but Sven has enough pedigree in his resume to sway anyone. Hopefully for tri color fans, he will take them farther in the world cup than he did with the brits.

****Mexico has reached the quarter finals twice, in 1970 and in 1986, both being staged in Mexico. All of their games resulting in a win or tie all played in the Azteca, with the advantage going to Mexico do to the altitude.

My point is, in 1970, there was no second round due to the size of the tourney. In 1986, they were lead to the quarters by the famed and Yugoslovian borned now Serbia, Bora Milutinovic, not bad for a foreigner.

Can Sven lead a team with a homefront as viscious as it is in England? Does he have enough clout to choose his players and not the ones forced onto him by the federation or the Mexican club team owners?
