But beyond the fact that the situation of André-Pierre Gignac must be analyzed by the Mexican Football Federation and FIFA, there is already reticence within the Mexican national team about the possible call-up of the Frenchman, who is a naturalized Mexican citizen.

In addition to Andres Guardado, Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is not entirely convinced that more naturalized players will join the Mexican national team. In fact, Paco Memo was one of those who opposed the arrival of Rogelio Funes Mori.

What does FIFA say about Gignac's possibility of playing for Mexico?

According to FIFA regulations, a player who has spent more than 5 years residing in the country he wants to represent may be eligible. In Gignac's case, his presence with the French national team, with whom he played in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, would also have to be checked.
