Who said this?
I liked Mexico. I thought they played better than the U.S. They’ve played well against the U.S. before, but the U.S. is a team that is always organized and never makes mistakes, while Mexico gets distracted and commits errors. That’s when the U.S. does its damage. In this game, the U.S. had the advantage. They went ahead twice, but Mexico was able to respond and tie the game. It surprised me that Mexico scored on set pieces, because the U.S. has tall players, but Mexico had several good plays. I think the players were satisfied with their effort, because they gave a good effort. But the U.S. retains a certain dominance, because in the end, we weren’t able to win. I hope in the next match, the team will triumph. In Mexico, there’s great pressure for us to win versus the U.S.
