Dos Santos gets warning from Mexico
Barcelona midfielder Jonathan Dos Santos has been warned by a
top-ranking Mexico football official that his decision to skip
upcoming friendlies with the Mexico national team could have
Dos Santos was the last player cut from the Mexico squad for the
World Cup in South Africa. Since then, he declined to play for
Mexico last month in a friendly against Spain and is skipping
Mexico’s match on Saturday against Ecuador in Guadalajara, and
another on Tuesday against Colombia in Monterrey.
The 20-year-old Dos Santos has never played an official game for
Mexico – only friendlies. He has a Spanish passport and his father
was born in Brazil, which could give him eligibility to play for a
country other than Mexico.
