thumbnail Hello,

Mexico national team coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said the roster for Mexico's March 11 match against Bolivia would be released at the end of the week.

Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said he would announce his 23-man roster for El Tri's next friendly on Friday.

Eriksson will make known which players he will use against Bolivia on March 11, which will be Mexico's final tune-up before a critical World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica on March 28.

The roster will include only domestic players. However, because of their respective participation in Copa Libertadores, no players from Chivas or San Luis will be on the squad.

Eriksson and the national team have been under fire recently. Mexico are in poor form, having lost three of their last four World Cup qualifiers. But Eriksson said he has handled everything well.

"I was born a calm person and I'm still calm now," Eriksson said.

Eriksson also shot down any chances of returning to England, where he has been linked with the Portsmouth job.

"Those are rumors," he said. "I will be on the bench with Mexico during the World Cup in South Africa. I have a contract and I will see it through."
