Mexico name two interim coaches for friendlies

sports Updated: Jul 27, 2010 15:21 IST

Mexico have named two interim coaches for their upcoming friendlies, with former coach Enrique Meza returning for next month's match against world champions Spain and Efrain Flores taking charge for two games in September.

The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) said the appointment of seasoned coach Meza, who resigned during the qualifiers for the 2002 World Cup after an unhappy spell in charge, was a tribute to his work in club soccer.

"The naming of Meza is a recognition of his career and achievements," said Mexican Football Federation (FMF) director Nestor de la Torre.

Flores, who has a lot of experience with young players, will then take over for the matches against Chile on Sept. 4 and Colombia five days later as well as a possible third match.

De la Torre said that after the September games, the federation would consider candidates for taking the position on a long-term basis.
