We heard this comical news piece first on TalkSport this afternoon, but the latest news from the Mexico camp is of unrest after coach Aguirre’s decision to axe young Dos Santos brother Jonathan from the Mexico 23-man FIFA World Cup squad. Older brother Giovanni, currently of Tottenham Hotspur in England but spent last season on loan with Turkish side Galatasaray, has responded to Javier Aguirre’s decision to cut his young sibling from the pack in a bitter fashion, aided by his father, with the Tottenham winger considering recalling his services from the international team if his young brother isn’t included in the squad for South Africa.

We’ve watched Giovanni Dos Santos in some of Mexico’s recent warm up games, the game against England at Wembley especially, and he was bright and lively on the wing. Were he to pull out of the team in bizarre and comical circumstances, Mexico would lose some genuine creativity and spark from their forward options. We wait with eager eyes to see how this situation resolves itself.
