Hugo Perez, coach of The Savior, recognized the quality of Mexican team who beat them 2-0 in the Cuscatlán Stadium and even apologized on behalf of the federation of his country because some Salvadoran fans booed the Mexican anthem.
“It is unfortunate, we Salvadorans want to respect any rival who comes, the anthem that is sung must be respected. I am not in favor in that sense, we have to be more careful, respectful, but it does not mean that everyone in El Salvador is the same, there are cultured people here and I apologize. I do not like it, we must change and I am against all that.
“Against Mexico it is difficult to play with 10 men, we lacked punch, but we must give credit to Mexico, they have a very competitive team, three or four enter and they are better than those who have left,” he said.
Meanwhile, the coach of the Central American squad said that despite the result against Mexico, he is proud of what his players did on the pitch.
“When you lose you can say many things, but the responsibility for the loss is mine, the boys gave the effort, they tried and it was not possible. I talked to them and we basically have nine games left, we have to start adding either at home or abroad, we turn the page because we can’t complain, I can’t complain, they fought and we have to move on.
“We are in a non-critical situation, but if with urgency for the next FIFA Date because Canada, the United States and Mexico have already taken off, the others can get into fourth or third to get in and continue dreaming, and have the opportunity,” he said.
