MEXICO CITY -- Mexico head coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino has stressed that foreigner rules in Liga MX must be changed in order to clear the path to first team soccer for those coming through El Tri's successful youth team programs.

Mexico finished runner-up in the Under-17 on Sunday, as Brazil stormed to a late 2-1 victory, but with three U-17 World Cup finals in eights years for El Tri, Martino believes that nine non-homegrown players per 18-man match day squad in Liga MX games is too much.
