“What it rescued is the dedication, the desire to compete in a way that we are still learning, giving it an identity a little different from what we are, we have to be cautious, step by step, it is an important tournament, we already wait for what Mexico does. , I’ll keep the effort, that’s the most important thing, I don’t want to sound like we’ve done something extraordinary, they are two victories that give us confidence, ”Hugo Pérez concluded.
