CHICAGO - The Mexican National Team suffered a 0-1 loss to Bosnia and Herzegovina; which was the first loss for current manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera. Following the match Herrera spoke with Univision Deportes Network in an interview in which he labeled the Bosnia team as "Dirty Pigs".
The reason for Herrera's rage was the fact that Bosnia announced a starting lineup and made two changes prior to the kickoff of the match.
"These 'dirty pigs' won't be able to do this kind of things in a World Cup" said Miguel Herrera to Rodolfo Landers, field reporter of Univision Deportes Network. "Referees in a World Cup will be smarter and not allow these cheap and dirty tactics."
"IF YOU DON"T KNOW WHO DZEKO IS, THEN YOU SHOULD TRY SELLING GUM INSTEAD" - Miguel Herrera
One of the players who was not announced in the official starting lineup but appeared in the field of play for the opening whistle was Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.
Herrera said he went to the referees for an explanation, and did find an acceptable answer. According to the manager the referee answered with: "I don't know them they are a bunch of European guys."
To which Herrera said "If you don't know who Dzeko is then you can't be a FIFA referee, you should just try selling gum."
