Aguirre returns as Mexico coach

JAVIER Aguirre was reappointed Mexico coach on Friday, a day after Sven-Goran Eriksson was sacked following the team's shock 1-3 loss to Honduras.

The Mexican Football Federation said it trusted 50-year-old Aguirre to get the team to next year's World Cup in South Africa. Mexico has dropped to fourth in the six-team CONCACAF finals. Only the top three automatically qualify while the fourth-place team must meet South America's fifth-best in playoffs. Aguirre previously took over as Mexico coach in 2001 and took the team to the Copa America final and last 16 of the 2002 World Cup.
