He'd like to end the U.S. run.
Talk about how important it is for Mexico to have more European players to face the United States, since they have so many players in Europe.
I think it’s important for our team, to have players developing at that level. For Mexico, it’s important to be able to count on quality players. Everybody has been working very hard and I think that’s good for the team.
A big threat from the U.S. is set pieces, don’t you think?
For the little bit I’ve seen, I think Mexico is solid when defending set pieces. In a game, a lot can happen. I do think that for the U.S., a set piece is a weapon that they put into practice during a game. We have to defend well and concentrate throughout the game.
What does Mexico have to do to beat the U.S.?
We need to defend well and worry about our own game. I think we have great players who are in good form. If we concentrate on our work, we’ll do well.
It’s your first US/Mexico game, your first classico with the senior match with the team, and Mexico hasn’t been successful in those lately.
Yes, well, the truth is that that it’s been hard for Mexico, because we should win. It’s a game that for years has been complicated with losses, and now I think it’s a good time to change that.
