Eriksson seeks advice from former coaches

Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has sought advice from former national team bosses Manuel Lapuente and Ricardo Lavolpe ahead of the third stage of 2010 World Cup qualifying.

The Swede travelled to Monterrey to meet Tigres coach Lapuente and Monterrey boss Lavolpe.

Lavolpe said: 'I only gave him only one opinion - not to listen to critics. He will be criticised - everybody criticises, everybody is a coach - and he understood it.

'I told him the Mexican media is difficult to deal with. For an European-born boss, it's important to know South America thinks differently about football.

'We (South Americans) demand immediate results and criticise how you play or did not play.

'On the squad selection, there is a lack of respect when asking why a player was called up or why a player was not named. If he understands that, it's great, but he has to understand it.'

Mexico kick off the third round of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup on August 20.

They have been drawn in the same group as Honduras. Jamaica and Canada, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the final round.

Lapuente revealed he warned Eriksson the qualifiers would be tough, saying: 'I told him he should be careful as this year's group stage is the toughest I have ever seen.

'This round will be very hard to pass so we should not be over-confident,' Lapuente added.
