The match begins
They take the field
"The message that is sent is that in case someone incurs in any fault or discriminatory act, that person should be punished, not the national team, the coaching staff and players, the Federation are the least guilty. I believe that in the world we are the Federation that works the most with the local authorities. With Conapred, with Concacaf, with FIFA itself, we are congratulated, but at the same time we are punished. I think we can do it differently," commented Yon de Luisa.

Lack of impact
"Yes, it is something that worries us a lot, we reach places on the field where it is very difficult to reach per game, especially on the flanks", said the Argentinean coach in a press conference.
Suárez against Tata
"What happens is that defensively "Tata" Martino has made many changes, he does not have a fixed dupla, and that is important to have that coordination, that communication, I played with "Capi" Ramirez Perales, then I played with Duilio Davino, with Joel Sanchez and then Rafa Marquez and we understood each other well. What happens is that when results are not forthcoming, practically everything is always questioned and questions are always asked as to whether there is a lack of leaders".
With an encouraging outlook
"I remember that the Mexican National Team had been undefeated for I don't know how many matches, they couldn't beat us and that match against Costa Rica, we had the obligation to win, then we were overcome with nervousness and we made defensive mistakes", Suárez mentioned to Azteca Deportes.
Luis García lashes out against El Tri
"This national team is a hybrid because unfortunately this "golden generation" is already out, it has one foot and a half out. They will try to keep the door open for Guardado, Herrera, Moreno and Ochoa, who have already left. Great players, 700,000 games in Europe, 50,000 World Cups, America Cups, who have already left", stated García.

Another final for Costa Rica
"It is another final for Costa Rica, I think it is decisive for us on Sunday to score to continue with that World Cup dream, Costa Rica is going through a generational change and obviously we are clear about what our disease is. Right now we are in a complicated situation, but soccer is so kind that we are still alive," he concluded.
Jafet Soto criticizes Mexico
"Héctor Herrera explains that when they play in Costa Rica the stadium is heavy, when they go to Honduras the stadium is heavy, so they recognize that they themselves are not heavy at the Azteca Stadium, because the fans are not heavy", he mentioned in an interview for Marca Claro.
