Costa Rica, a team with a lot of experience

On the other hand, Celso Borges, captain of the Costa Rican national team, gave his point of view about the experience he and his teammates have in this type of games, which, he assures, will help them: "We have already been in this role for a few processes (among the players with the most experience), and if something is true it is that we need everyone's help to carry it out. In a national team we all become important to achieve the common goal we want. The more experience we accumulate, the more we have to tell and contribute, but we learn from everyone in this process. That is also the beauty of being here."

Panama, not to make mistakes

Looking ahead to this match, Édgar Bárcenas, Panamanian attacker, spoke of the importance of concentration to obtain a positive result: "We have to know that this is the beginning. It is not the last match, we must be calm. Of course, we know we are at home, we want to start well. So, we have to be 100% focused, we can't concede anything to the rival, we have to be at our best and try to keep a clean sheet."
