  • Description

    HEADLINE WORLD CUP NEWS IN LONDON TODAY (SATURDAY) IS THAT A MAN HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH THE THEFT OF THE GBP30,000 SOLID-GOLD TROPHY, BUT SO FAR THE CUP ITSELF HAS NOT BEEN RECOVERED. MEANWHILE THE VARIOUS TEAMS WHICH WILL BE COMPETING IN THE WORLD CUP COMPETITION IN BRITAIN THIS SUMMER, ARE CONTINUING THE PAINSTAKING PROCESS OF TRAINING.

    IN MEXICO TWENTY-FOUR PLAYERS FROM THE COUNTRY'S 16 BEST TEAMS HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR TRAINING UNDER THE EYE OF IGNACIO TELLEZ, THE 45-YEAR-OLD FORMER PROFESSIONAL PLAYER WHO HAS BEEN THE MEXICAN TEAM'S COACH SINCE 1957
    BEFORE LEAVING FOR BRITAIN WHERE THE FINAL 16 NATIONS WILL COMPETE FOR A PLACE IN THE WORLD CUP FINAL, THE TWENTY-FOUR PLAYERS WILL HAVE UNDERGONE PERIODS OF TRAINING IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT PARTS OF MEXICO. THE IDEA IS TO ENABLE THEM TO BECOME AS FAMILIAR AS POSSIBLE WITH DIFFERENT TYPE OF CLIMATIC AND GROUND CONDITIONS SO THAT THEY QUICKLY GET USED TO BRITISH CONDITIONS - AND, OF COURSE, THE FAMOUS BRITISH WEATHER.

    AT THE MOMENT THE MEXICAN SQUAD IS TRAINING AT THE "JALISCO STADIUM", IN MEXICO'S SECOND LARGEST CITY, GUADALAJARA. IT'S PROBABLE THAT THE MEXICAN TEAM WILL ACCEPT AND INVITATION TO PLAY A NUMBER OF MATCHES IN LOS ANGELES IN EARLY APRIL AS PART OF THEIR EXTENSIVE - AND HIGHLY INTENSIVE - TRAINING PROGRAMME.

    (MEXICO HAVE BEEN DRAWN TO PLAY FRANCE IN THEIR FIRST MATCH OF THE FINAL STAGES OF THE COMPETITION AT WEMBLEY STADIUM OF 13TH JULY).
