In their conversation the subject of insults from Mexico to his words was taken up, But the most important thing was the understanding that everyone now has of how complicated it will be to be part of the National Team..
“I believe that the teacher (Fabián Coito) will already be able to count on a much larger team for the Qualifiers, with which I can work with all the teammates who were not due to injuries and the U-23, from whom the maximum benefit will be taken after competing at such a high level, ”commented the defender who surprised the line-up after the injuries of players like Marcelo Pereira.
Of course, this addition of names will not be easy, so the internal competition will be more than demanding: “We are going to work hard in our teams to show ourselves to the teacher, so that he can make the best decisions. Now the competition and the quota in each of the calls will be narrower”.
Who will make it through the cut to face in the first pre-global duel to Canada?
