Alejandro Zendejas-Mexico case

Zendejas represented Mexico in two exhibition games but never applied for his one-time nationality switch

FIFA, the governing body of world football, is investigating whether or not FMF, the Mexican football federation, breached any rules when they played Zendejas in two friendlies since October 2021.

FIFA issued the following statement to ESPN Deportes on Friday: "FIFA will investigate this matter. Please understand that we cannot make any further comments at this time."

The Mexican-born midfielder is a FC Dallas youth prospect who first represented the United States in the U-15 and U-17 levels before making the switch to Mexico at the youth level.

Currently playing for Club America, he's a possible name to replace the injured Jesus "Tecatito" Corona

but was not included in manager Tata Martino's squad for next week's friendly against Paraguay in Atlanta.

Had Zendejas and the Mexican federation done everything properly (which may still be up for debate), then Zendejas would have successfully filed a one-time switch to play for Mexico.

If the investigation shows that he didn't, it would against the rules and in theory still make him eligible to represent the United States
