Eriksson seeking advice from former bosses

MEXICO CITY, July 10 (National Team) - Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has revealed he will seek the advice of former Tricolor bosses ahead of their World Cup qualifiers next month.

Eriksson will take charge of the national team for the first time when they host Honduras on August 20 in Group Two of the third round of qualifying.

In a press conference on Thursday, the former England, Lazio and Manchester City coach confirmed he will talk to former Mexico managers Hugo Sanchez and Ricardo Lavolpe ahead of the match.

'It's very probable that I will talk to them because being given different opinions is always important,' he said.

At the press conference Eriksson also revealed his Mexico-born assistants with Francisco Ramirez to act as his assistant.

In addition to Ramirez, Eriksson named the rest of his backroom staff with Jorge Romo (head doctor), Joaquin Ledesma (team doctor) and Alberto Aguilar (goalkeeping coach) joining his usual assistants Hans Backe and Tord Grip.

Eriksson also hailed the job caretaker manager Jesus Ramirez did in the five games he was at the helm.

Ramirez guided the team to four wins from five games including a 7-0 thrashing of Belize in his final game last month to ensure Mexico's safe passage to the third round of World Cup qualifying.

Eriksson said: 'Mexico have a lot of important players and they are very good. His (Ramirez's) job was very good as he passed the second round of the World Cup qualifiers. It was our first goal.'

Mexico have been drawn in Group Two of the third round of World Cup qualifying alongside Jamaica, Honduras and Canada.
