"The foundation of our game is fair play, and we must take the required steps to reinforce the importance of this principle,'' said Alfredo Hawit, who became president of North and Central America and the Caribbean's governing...

Christian Martinoli: The man who brought down Miguel Herrera

ESPN's Fernando Palomo joins the ESPN FC crew to react to Miguel Herrera's firing as the Mexico head coach.

When Miguel Herrera released his statement responding to his firing by the Mexican federation, he never mentioned commentator Christian Martinoli by name, but there was a specific reference to the TV Azteca personality.

"I understand that this is not an attitude becoming of a Mexico national team coach, despite all the criticism and taunts against myself and my family."

Indeed, though others have criticized Herrera for different things, Martinoli may now claim to be the one who ended Herrera's...

Mexico play hurt by sponsor interests, says ex-coach Victor Vucetich

ESPN's Fernando Palomo joins the ESPN FC crew to react to Miguel Herrera's firing as the Mexico head coach.
Mexican Football Federation president Decio de Maria Serrano reveals that despite Mexico winning the Gold Cup they have decided to part ways with Miguel Herrera.
The Mexico Football Federation voted to sack coach Miguel Herrera following an alleged incident that took place at Philadelphia International Airport.

El Tri's commercial sponsorship interests affected their performance under Miguel Herrera's direction, said ex Mexico national team coach Victor Manuel Vucetich.

Vucetich, who coached the team in 2013 for two games before being replaced by Herrera as Mexico's fourth coach in the span of three months during the summer of 2013, is reportedly under consideration to coach the team again since Herrera's sacking on Tuesday.

Vucetich said he would have to carefully consider an offer if one came.

Mexican federation needs to fix issues before choosing Herrera's successor

ESPN's Fernando Palomo joins the ESPN FC crew to react to Miguel Herrera's firing as the Mexico head coach.

Hard facts don't often lie.

Now that Miguel Herrera has been unceremoniously booted out of his job as the Mexico national team head coach, El Tri has had six head coaches since the 2010 World Cup and 14 since 1999. That is an average of just over 13 months per coach.

In comparison, the United States has had three since the turn of the century.

It may not seem like a huge issue in itself, or the be all and end all. After all, it was Mexico, not the U.S., who won the Gold Cup, showed the better football...
