Juan Carlos Osorio quotes

Nov 11 2017

We want to give a chance to the others who have a lot of desire to contribute. We'll see if we can try another structure of play - Poland plays differently than Belgium. We'll see how the players wake up tomorrow, we'll train and we'll make those decisions.feedback

Nov 11 2017

We played against an opponent who is very well-placed in the FIFA rankings with a very attractive style of football, an aggressive goal, which is enviable. We put out a game where we were equal. We controlled the game in certain moments. We had various goals, trying to limit transitions from defense to attack, to control the game. We messed up twice in the first half and that's where they had their chances.feedback

Nov 09 2017

Hirving's case is an example to follow for a lot of players and hopefully we can [have others follow], first with his good showings winning the right to go to another league, another club - obviously the Dutch league and PSV are very respectable - but in his personal growth he should get into other leagues like the Spanish, German, the Premier League, hopefully one of the top five clubs in these leagues or the Italian league. Hopefully other players can do the same.feedback

Nov 09 2017

I think we're going to give them the respect they deserve, but we're going to put out a team with the ability to fight for possession and also control their aerial game really well and see if tomorrow we're at the best level to be able to show something similar to what we did in the first game of the Confederations Cup.feedback

Nov 03 2017

He always has been and will be considered for the extraordinary career he's had and because he keeps himself in good condition to compete. He's just started playing again recently and he's regaining his level of play, getting better in training sessions and with games. He's going to be considered.feedback

Oct 12 2017 - Mexico

I don't know what goal he had in saying this. You can't forget that of the four Mexican players, Corona was the best on the field, Layun had an assist and Herrera scored a goal. He would be better off saying thank you to Porto for the players.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Mexico

We honored one of our values, the fair play, trying to win and be fair to other national teams. We're proud of our players, in the way we competed. It's going to be very important for players like Edson Alvarez and Jesus Gallardo, who are getting stronger, and this will give them a lot of lessons. We're sad not to be be able to have achieved the record for points in the final Hexagonal.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Mexico

It's a challenge, without a doubt, to plan, to prepare for two games in five sessions, but we've dedicated the same time to it as we've done for the other games, the same type of planning. Surely tomorrow night you're going to see in the starting XI a declaration of intention to play and look for the victory.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Mexico

We came in very hopeful. We've got a very good team and tomorrow we're going to do everything possible to win, as always, to represent Mexico well and above all to achieve our goals. We've achieved two of the three and tomorrow is the through, the great possibility for the group, for us to achieve and hopefully we can do it.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Mexico

We're sad not to be able to have achieved the record for most points in the final Hexagonal.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Mexico

It's become a theme we've discussed and mentioned in previous news conferences that the team has consistency and is efficient getting into the final third, but we're lacking efficiency, most of all, in trying to finish our chances to score the first time.feedback

Oct 07 2017 - Mexico

We understand that the game is one of opinions, but you have to remember that Giovani dos Santos still is considered a young player and he's played more than 100 matches with the national team. We think you have to have this role in mind and understand that the changes he's having in his way of training, his life, are now showing results. Today he competed at a high level for a much longer time than he did in previous matches. Now, we're hoping he can recuperate in this footballing aspect and be able to show all his talent.feedback

Oct 07 2017 - Mexico

The experience was very positive. I want to take this chance to thank all the fans in San Luis, not only for the reception but also for the support in the game. I think it was felt during the 90 minutes and without doubt was one of the reasons why the team also was able to have this comeback and increase its intensity, feeling the support of their fans. So, it was very positive in all aspects.feedback

Oct 07 2017 - Mexico

I think there are very few national teams who can change like we can. That's to say, putting a left winger like Hirving Lozano to play right back, basically the totally opposite position.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - Mexico

There's the great chance to finish first in the final Hexagonal and complete this qualification cycle in a healthy way like we always talk about. Our goal, as it's been during this work, always is to get at least four points of the six possible. We're going to try to make it six. The plan this week has been very positive for the group.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - Mexico

The most important is that we achieved our group objective, to give Mexico, as a footballing country, an early, healthy qualification with three games left. In the next, drawing with an opponent like Costa Rica. The national team really is being competitive playing away as well as playing at home. That's more important than other statistics.feedback

Oct 05 2017 - Mexico

We have the privilege to manage a unique national team. Mexico's case is something special, to have a market not only in your own country but also in the neighboring country and in a world power. There are tons of opinions. You have to accept them. You have to learn from the positives and work on always trying to give 100 percent to keep winning. Mentally and emotionally these have been two years of learning a lot, an extraordinary experience I wouldn't change for anything.feedback

Oct 05 2017 - Mexico

I think there have been a lot of games, some opportunities have been difficult as happens with any process, but crisis? Really, only one time because it's one thing to have lost against Chile in the Copa America with the best possible team on the field and another very different thing to have lost a semifinal against Germany in the Confederations Cup with two very painful absences for us - I'm talking about Diego Reyes and Carlos Salcedo.feedback

Oct 05 2017 - Mexico

I want to thank the fans. The reception was powerful, and all the guys felt it because they know the passion and love the Mexican fans have for their national team. Today, truly, I think they felt it, so we're very thankful to all the fans who participated in this gesture.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Mexico

It's a great experience for the young players like Jesus Gallardo, Edson Alvarez, Hirving Lozano and Cesar Montes, who came on in the second half, they're both the present and the future of Mexican soccer and they're going to grow a lot. It's very difficult to play here. The point here puts us within our mark of getting four out of six points in every FIFA date, we still have the chance to finish as the leader.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Mexico

On goals, normally the defenders and/or the goalkeeper is criticized and in a lot of cases you have to give credit to the attackers. The Costa Rica goal is a great goal for them, mid-range shot and he put it in a very difficult place for Guillermo. Our goal I think also was a very good goal.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Mexico

Football as I play it never will stop being unpredictable, having this randomness that can surprise you at any moment. Our idea is very brave, always going out on the front foot to look for every game. Obviously this implies that there's plenty to improve. We're going to have very good games, other times not as much and we're going to learn and keep improving.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Mexico

The first goal is to finish first in the Hex. I think we're on the way and have every chance. How do we do it? Like I've said before, taking every game how it comes. Today the most important is the Costa Rica game, and we're going to take it on in this way.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - World Cup

And finally, I think the maturity all their players have having played in a World Cup gives them experience, this plus having a good record in qualification. That's why it's one of the best teams in the confederation.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - Mexico

We think there are three things to keep in mind with the current national team: the two players out wide who get into the attack really well – right now they're going more into the final third. Second, something really important is that [Celso] Borges, in addition to being a central midfielder with the ability to win back balls, he's constantly joining the attack and trying to take advantage of his aerial game.feedback

Sep 01 2017 - Mexico

Personally, I couldn't feel better. The rest served me well, I took advantage of it to the fullest, spending it with my family. I watched a lot of international soccer and I coached the teams where my kids played. I really enjoyed being on the field, trying out a lot of things I can apply to future trainings with other teams including those at the highest level.feedback

Sep 01 2017 - Mexico

Being so close creates a bit of anxiousness for the game, but we believe that we're really well prepared. We're expecting that the team we have will give everything in this game and try to get us even closer to the goal.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Mexico

To play on the right side, we have three really good choices. One, Edson (Alvarez) in Gold Cup he played maybe the most in the Mexican team and if you remember he played every game from the start except one, and that one he came in and scored a goal, in this position. We were really impressed.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Ecuador elections 2017

Well, in this selection, in the seven very good defenders we have, to play on the left side we have two great options: Jesus Gallardo, who does it often at his club, Pumas, and Hector Moreno, who recently did it at his new club and has done it before, so not only with PSV but also with Roma he's played there.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Mexico

Diego can change from a back four into a back three with his movement. Edson has the great quality of being able to play inside because he's played in the middle. And as a third option is Jesus Duenas, who has done it a lot with his club. So, from our point of view - and we understand that there are other great outside backs in Mexican soccer - we think that in this call-up there are four or five very good defenders.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Portugal

We also have Diego Reyes who did it in the Confederations Cup. He has good aerial football, he's good at marking, he can defend balls to the back post like any center back, something that hurt us in the game against Portugal in the third/fourth-place game. Something we think is important and very much keep in mind in this position.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Mexico

I'm sure I'm going to have a great chance to chat personally with Rafael and express to him, well first to listen and second to express our opinion. We all know it's a difficult situation and we can only hope it gets resolved in the best way possible.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Mexico

The absence of Miguel is a decision we made mutually, led by him. We understand his situation, we hope it's resolved in a satisfactory way and surely he'll be with us again in the future.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - World Cup

We hope with this list of very good players we can complete and, as is our plan, have two good groups to face these two games. They're vital and fundamental for our goal to qualify for the World Cup and we hope, as always, they represent Mexican football very well.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Mexico

We've continued, even with losses that have tormented me for a while, but the scars stay there. We've gotten past that and the group has won more than it has lost. We're very hopeful in continuing to grow.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Mexico

We're making a genuine effort not to translate doubts, to help the players stay calm and give us the chance to win. As I've said before, the Mexican player is brave, educated, willing to work. The group is the same as the group at the Confederations was at its time, optimistic and hoping it wins the title.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Mexico

Honduras is going to show an athletic team, a fast team and very hard working, which is a characteristic of a team coached by Jorge Luis Pinto.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Mexico

We've worked a lot on the way - or the five, six ways - of breaking through against an opponent who sits back a bunch with the number of chances we have in their area and behind the ball and intensely in the form they treat the ball.feedback

Jul 15 2017 - Mexico

As far as how I feel during the games, needless to say it's a very difficult situation. I can't deny the fact that I enjoy very much being by the sideline, next to the players, and the one thing specifically that is very difficult to deal with is the fact that when something happens on the field and I try to make aware of that situation it takes too long and it's gone, it's past and it's basically two or three new plays have happened after that.feedback

Jul 15 2017 - Mexico

It's very difficult to correct the points that are relevant to the specific situation. So I would say that if there is one word to describe that, it's frustration.feedback

Jul 15 2017 - Mexico

With the group, I'm very happy, very optimistic. One of the things I enjoy most overall is working with this new generation of players, players who have been with us in previous squads and the new ones. It's extrodinary to be with them, to work with them on the training field about our styles of play, our principles, their role, learning about them and sharing our knowledge.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Mexico

For that reason, we've thought about, we've trained and we've evaluated a lot of our players in their natural positions and in those we see players who can play more than one position, [which] could be in the case of Edson (Alvarez), the case of Jesus (Molina), the case of Orbelin (Pineda), the case of Rodolfo (Pizarro).feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Mexico

We hope to get the selection of the group right.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Peru

We're paying a lot of attention to what they offer as principal characteristics. We've seen two games, the one against Curacao, which we attended, and we also saw the friendly game against Peru on video. It's a team that's going to demand we get the details right, that's going to contend with its quick football.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Ecuador elections 2017

I think, although we've always put importance on it, although we've always taken it in mind, although it's always been one of the factors we think about with our rotations, we suffered with Diego Reyes and Hector Moreno getting injured in the Confederations Cup. I think it's a factor where we have to keep getting better.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Mexico

They are very young, very hungry for success and hopefully the ones that you mentioned will go there, get enough experience and then they will bring it back to the national team. That can only strengthen the squad, the depth of the squad, and hopefully we will continue growing as a national team.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Mexico

It's very rewarding in Antuna's case because from the U-20s in Korea we wanted to bring three players: Alejandro Mallorga, Edson (Alvarez) and Atuna, . Unfortunately we couldn't do it at the end, but I think it's very good for Mexican football that European clubs are looking at us with the possibility to sign new players.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Ecuador elections 2017

We're talking about the champion of the world, who everyone admires. There's a big difference between being young and having experience, that's where they have an advantage on us in the sense that it's a group between 22 and 25 years old who, despite their young age, all have more than 100 games in the first division. Many of them have been champions in their club and they've been in the national team system.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Being young and having experience are two different things. For example, you can go to university when you are 30 years old and become a heart surgeon and have no experience at all.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Champions League

The fact is they are 23 years old, they have played in national cups, they have won the Bundesliga, played in UEFA tournaments and played in the Champions League.feedback

Jun 28 2017

The same happens in football. Maybe their advantage is in the group between 22 and 25 years old – [Leon] Goretzka, Kimmich, [Matthias] Ginter, [Emre] Can and Draxler.feedback

Jun 28 2017

We have the possibility to play against them and we can properly represent Mexican football, CONCACAF football and a country who really wants to learn from the big countries like Germany.feedback

Jun 28 2017

But you can study when you are 21 and then work in an emergency room in a huge city and have surgeries 10 times a weekend. When you are 22 or 23, you will have much more experience in practice than the heart surgeon who is 30 years old.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Mexico

You have mentioned that Germany is a very young squad; they have only one player who is 20, [Benjamin] Henrichs, who plays with Javier [Hernandez] at Bayer Leverkusen. There are two who are 21, [Niklas] Sule and [Julian] Brandt, who are the same age as [Mexico winger] Hirving Lozano.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Mexico

Unfortunately it looks like Diego Reyes had a hamstring problem. We'd thought about it because he'd come in playing all the previous games, like a lot of the guys, that's why we rotated, made various rotations, the day of the game against New Zealand. Unfortunately, we lost Carlos Salcedo and today Diego started again. We had planned to give him rest or at least not start with him.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Mexico

We competed really well. We're continuing to construct a team that every time goes out and shows more determination and skill.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Mexico

Mexico are getting more and more used to playing against teams in different settings. We played in a stadium of more than 40,000 and against the hosts. Winning is very important for Mexican football.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Mexico

I think we played very well. We are still building a team that is able to show that they have the skills and determination to play against anybody.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Mexico

This is something Mexican players really care about. We really care about giving everything until the bitter end. We play with strength, virility and spirit. Hirving fought for everything against the goalkeeper and really deserved that goal.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Mexico

We could have scored more goals if we had been able to circulate the ball better but we understand that our lads maybe had too much adrenaline. We deserved this victory and we're really happy.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Mexico

I think, in some cases, the opponents scored very quickly [in other matches] even if they maybe didn't deserve it. But our squad has shown again how resistant we are. We fight very hard, until the end, as we've seen in all the games we've played.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Mexico

We're again going to try to show the idea of play we have against team who sit back and counter with everyone. In this case, that's the question because of the opponent's need to seek out the result. We'll know this from the starting XI, but we're going to be ready for the possible situation the game presents us with.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Mexico

I honestly think that this is the perfect scenario for Mexican football. We play away from home, against the host team, with a lot of support from their fans, and fighting for the qualification. We need to control the game and to show to ourselves, especially, that we can compete under such difficult circumstances.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Mexico

It's an extraordinary scenario, because it gives Mexican football and this group of players the possibility of showing that we have the capacity to take on this responsibility, that we have the talent and the determination to play in this scenario. If we do well, we will take a step forward, and we keep growing as a team capable of playing against any team.feedback

Jun 21 2017

First of all, I want to take this chance to offer an apology to all the TV viewers, evidently I got out hand, specifically toward one of their assistants, one of them who doesn't have hair. We always respect that they have a very direct idea of playing soccer, a style with a lot of contact but when this passes the limit and becomes an abuse of Fair Play that's where I reach my limit of accepting things.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Portugal

We've studied all our opponents and we believe we have great possibilities tomorrow. We think that New Zealand will think about playing direct. It's a very different opponent from what Portugal was, but complicated in the same way. We're thinking of moving our structure a bit, of refreshing the team to go out to compete and try to win the game using our strengths.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Portugal

Every game has its importance. Now we have this result and we're going to focus and concentrate on the next game. It's going to be a very difficult opponent who is going to give everything in the next game and we're going to try to win and advance.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Mexico

We had almost 60 percent of the possession. It's deserved and what Mexico have done deserves praise, to go toe-to-toe with the champions of Europe. We played against a team at a high level. There are a lot of things to improve. We lacked a little bit of efficiency. The Kazan Arena is amazing. There was a great atmosphere, we felt very close to the fans and the pitch was really perfect. We're very happy with this first game.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Portugal

I think that, when football people enjoy the way we play, especially against a team like the one we faced, it's very positive.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Mexico

We got almost 60 percent of possession. What Mexico did, going directly up against the European champion, is commendable and deserves praise.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Portugal

In the end, it was a well-deserved result after how we played today. We faced the European champions, a team that plays at a very high level, and we played equal to them. It was a great result for Mexican football.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Portugal

I don't think we'll see a match with more defending than attacking. We believe we have a great opportunity.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Portugal

I can only tell you that with the squad Portugal brought, it's basically the best team they could have, apart from Renato Sanches. It's going to be very difficult.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Portugal

The best way to stop transitions is to defend in your own half and try to avoid that they overcome your defence. Or, we might risk a bit more and go for their goal. You'll see what we do. Let's hope the system works as well as possible. But yes, their transitions are very dangerous, like any team that plays with that system.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Mexico

They're coming here to win, which is wonderful for the tournament. You can see they are taking this very seriously. It's the same with Chile. It's an honour to play against the best teams in the world and that's what Mexico really needs.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Portugal

The collective is above the individual, but it is clear that not only in Cristiano, also in Nani, Martins and Quaresma, they have elite players. We also think that ours can do a very good job. We come to compete not against Cristiano Ronaldo, but against the Portuguese national team. Obviously we will have special considerations for him, for the magnificent player that he is.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Mexico

It's an extraordinary opportunity to compete against the current champion of Europe and against one of the best players on the planet. I think that it's an extraordinary opportunity for Mexican soccer.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Mexico

We deeply respect all opponents.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Portugal

The collective is above the individual, but it is clear that not only in Cristiano, also in Nani, [Gelson] Martins and [Ricardo] Quaresma, they have elite players. We also think that ours can do a very good job.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Mexico

Their idea from the start was to defend. They defended with five, waiting for us to make an error. That's what happened on the goal.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

I'm a low-key, low-profile manager that can get on with the young players, but I can also have a very good relationship with the veteran players because at the end of the day I can put my ego aside and try to speak to the players at their level. And I think that's a big plus when you are managing a team.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

I wasn't there so I'm not 100 percent sure, but from a distance I would think it is easier for a manager like Bruce Arena or myself to get on with the players and to be almost at the same level versus top managers with top professional careers as players like Mr. Klinsmann. That's a simple assumption on my part. It could be the other way around, I'm not sure. But as far as I'm concerned that has been the case for me (with the Mexican team).feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

I told him that it would be fantastic if one day I could compete against him. That would be an honor, like it is for me in most cases.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

I think he makes his team very well organized and it seems to me that he has a good relationship with them. Which probably with (Jurgen Klinsmann) was difficult because of his status.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

It will be a fantastic occasion for me on Sunday. For us to compete against the U.S., a national team that we respect, and a manager that I also respect a lot.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Mexico

Obviously I cannot read into the future. Nevertheless, I said 'I'm sure you will come back at some point to the national team' because of his ability and his knowledge of football in general, and specifically the football in the United States.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - World Cup

The guys know that (Sunday's match) is an extraordinary opportunity in the face of the Russia World Cup. We rested various players in the last match and they're going to be very fresh for tomorrow. We're going to put out a competitive team and hopefully we can take this step, which would be extraordinary for Mexican soccer.feedback

Jun 10 2017

On Jesus M. Corona, it's a personal decision and we deeply respect it.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Mexico

Alanis has seen his chances limited by Hector Moreno's good performances and today he had an extraordinary game.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Mexico

You have to remember that in the last game we used other players. I remember Jesus Duenas, Angel Zaldivar, Javier Aquino or Angel Sepulveda. I think the game plan could be the same but the technical quality the players have is different. I think the injuries at that time, they didn't give us many options. It was well controlled and managed.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Mexico

We have a select group of players who are in a different situation, who although they might play in the Confederations Cup could be considered for the Gold Cup for two important situations: their personal situation or the position in which they play.feedback

May 29 2017 - Mexico

He's very close. The idea is to have him participate in the game against Ireland.feedback

May 28 2017 - Mexico

I think he's among the four best finishers in the world and he could play in any league.feedback

May 27 2017 - Mexico

As has always been our practice during our time here, we're going to take advantage of these two preparation matches to give an opportunity to the players who are on the way to strengthening themselves in the national team. We're basically going to mix (the groups) together in the best way, keeping in mind that the two games are ahead of two qualifiers, which for us continue to be the most important.feedback

May 27 2017 - Mexico

The physical demands have been exacting since Monday, we've talked about it with some of the guys. They've been feeling it, but everyone understands that at the end we're going to benefit from it and we believe that we'll have a good match with the preparation in the altitude.feedback

May 16 2017

Keeping in mind that he's training with his club, individually, but he's training. We're going to work to decide when he's ready to be on the field. This is a decision the medical staff will make.feedback

May 12 2017 - Mexico

That's the principle and the internal competition is what brings us to rotate people. But I have to say that at the same time, today there are four or five players who (without rotations) wouldn't have had a chance with the senior national team.feedback

May 12 2017 - Mexico

As the leader of this sporting project and this process, I have to make the decisions at the end, and I take that on. But I also understand that everyone has the right to express their opinion. Basically, we believe more in the collective than the individual, specifically that the individual has to be available serve the collective. If its the other way around, there's no chance of success. Orbelin, Hirving, Jesus Duenas, Jesus Molina, I think they're players who have benefited from the rotation.feedback

Apr 21 2017

(Torres) has, and I'm sure he knows, a tough challenge. He's competing against (Chicharito), against Oribe (Peralta), against Alan (Pulido), against Raul (Jiminez), and that's not an easy task. Welcome to the competition for a place on the national team, and as a Mexican we are watching him very closely.feedback

Apr 21 2017

It also seems to be that for the second time, and it's not a coincidence, that he's playing very well under Wilmer. It would be important to speak with (Cabrera), and listen to the treatment he's given (Torres), because he's had a lot to do with Torres being the leading scorer in MLS. It's not a coincidence. For us it would be very important to see him continue that form, and surely he'll have his opportunity (with the national team).feedback

Apr 21 2017

It seems to be that he's adjusted well, and now athletically he's doing well.feedback

Apr 21 2017

First of all, we all recognize in Cubo a very good finisher. We would like to believe that he will be a similar case to Giovani (Dos Santos), who came to this league, obviously without the same recognition or the same resume as Giovani, but with difficulties in the beginning adapting to the physical aspect of the league, which for me is the principal factor. It's a league that is very competitive and very physical.feedback

Apr 21 2017

It looks like he has adapted in the best way. We'd like to think he is adapting, and other Mexican players will adapt to this league. When you come here to (MLS), it obligates you to be in the best physical shape, and maybe in a physical shape they have never been in before. I'm not knocking Mexicans, I'm talking in general of all Latinos, including where I'm from, in Colombia. It's something that doesn't get the credit it deserves, the athletic condition (in MLS).feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Mexico

Right now we have two main concerns. Trying to combine all that, plus preparing ourselves in altitude to play in Mexico is quite difficult for us to accommodate all those factors. However, we think that we are going to have two very good groups that will give the chance to compete, with a great chance to win all the games that we have.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Mexico

I think that MLS, in the infrastructure of the league, is the model to be followed by any other league in the world. The venues are incredible. I think the level of play has improved, and if there is somebody familiar with all that it's Bruce Arena. I think Mr. Arena brings to the table a very competitive team. He knows how to get the best out of the American players and it will be a very difficult team to beat in Azteca.feedback

(First), the teams that are going to represent us playing on May 27 against Croatia, and then June 1 here against Ireland, because it will all depend on how far our players go in their respective leagues. Also, we want to give the players, especially those that come from Europe at least two or three days off, maybe four.feedback

He's a very talented player. I would probably say he can do as many things as Giovani (Dos Santos), but with his right foot. In the final third, he's capable of passing, dribbling, going past people. He can identify when and how to play, and he's a player who is very influential and we have to be very aware of him.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Mexico

Second, in the emotional part, we keep reiterating our belief that he's one of the best finishers in the world and at any moment he'll start scoring again.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Mexico

We think Javier is one of the best finishers in the world and we think he's unjustly criticized. So when (Chicharito) comes to the national team, the only thing we do is support him from a soccer standpoint. We surround him always with three options, two playing on the wings, and one player normally playing behind him. We don't give him all the responsibility to score goals, but rather to participate so he can be more influential in the games.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - World Cup

I think you have to get used to winning games. You have to go out with a lot of humility, with your feet on the ground knowing what the goal is because what we're looking for is going to the World Cup.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Mexico

To me, it looks like it's the most athletic team there is, so as we said when we played against Jamaica, they're very similar: Strong, fast. Almost everybody gets forward really well and above all (the three attacking midfielders and lone forward) all have speed from the middle on up.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Mexico

It could happen more to afford the biggest number of players the best resources to manage this game, that's going to be very different from Costa Rica, it's a team that plays much more direct. Not only that, but also straight. There aren't a lot of diagonal balls, but there is a lot of direct play to the No. 9, to (Kenwyne) Jones. I think we have the resources to counteract this part of their game, and we're going to do it, or at least we're going to try. From this perspective more than simply rotation, we're going to see the best possibilities we have for the team.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Mexico

It doesn't matter. That's the truth. The most important thing is what the guys and group did. Today they showed they have the moral fiber to take on this responsibility of playing here. Me? I'm 55 years old. If I can't take the pressure, it would be a serious problem.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Mexico

First, it seemed strange to me that Costa Rican fans didn't stop celebrating and it made it difficult to hear what they were trying to show to people to tell Rafael's story. We didn't hear it clearly. After the second goal, we didn't hear them again. The fans in the Estadio Azteca gave power to the stadium, as it should be, and I think the guys felt that support.feedback

Mar 26 2017 - Mexico

We think Hector Herrera and Dos Santos are interior players, playing inside, not outside like they play in their clubs. This is what makes us happiest, to see that they can play and compete with Andres for this place.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Mexico

As is our custom and normal practice, in the afternoon session we're going to try two or three options more before we finalize our plans for this game.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Mexico

First of all, we understand we are facing a great opponent. We prefer to talk about the behaviors they identify with. Surely, with the analysis we've done, the structure that has given them so many results in the past several years isn't going to change. Three central defenders, good defensive permutations. The two wingers who can come in from where they're playing. Central midfielders more there to distribute.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Mexico

If there's something that right now stays with us, it's the three forwards. They can play with Bryan Ruiz on the right or inside inverted. Bolanos inverted or wide. (Joel) Campbell could play, he had a good spell with Arsenal, he's fast, good in transition. Venegas who we consider as one of the Central American players with the biggest future. And Wallace, who we believe can support the team a lot. It's (Costa Rica coach Oscar) Ramirez's decision who and how they're going to play.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I think the guys are taking on this great responsibility. We see those who play locally in a really good way, that every time that group is getting closer to those who are in Europe, and that puts competition for spots in place, as it should be.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Portugal

Nestor Araujo, Hirving Lozano, Orbelin Pineda and Jesus Molina, the four could play, for example, in Spain without a doubt in the teams from the middle of the table going up and indisputably in the teams at the middle of the table going down. They also could play in Holland, in Portugal as well. I don't want to say they could go to play at Barcelona, but that there's a process to arrive there. I'm sure a lot pf players have a chance and the only way we're going to realize if they're ready to play there or not is being there.feedback

Mar 22 2017

Mexican football has to facilitate the exit of more players because, with all respect, when I see Borges, who we're going to face very soon, and he's an influential player with Deportivo La Coruna, I see Jesus Molina and Jesus Duenas at the same level.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Mexico

I shared messages with Jesus Corona and it's worth saying that he like Marco Fabian, fortunately they played for their clubs. Practically, though, it was something already sorted out. We had an agreement with their teams to give them the chance to recover, and unfortunately because of that they're not going to be here.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Mexico

We analyzed it and decided because of the suggestion of the players themselves. It's proven that the strongest effects of altitude occur at 72 hours, and this is what was happening. We think that with this decision the team is going to be better trained and prepared and we're going to be able to play at a rhythm that hopefully gives us every chance to win.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Unfortunately we haven't spoken a lot, because I understand that in the day-to-day, not only with La Liga but also with the Champions, their attention must be totally on their games. It hasn't been with the frequency I wanted, but it's very, very important to hear their opinions and what they think. Profe Sampaoli already has a very rich resume from his profesional life. He did a great work on the club level in Chile, after that with the national team also and I don't think that the challenge of coming here to coach was going to be too big for him.feedback

Feb 07 2017

We're again playing against the champions of Europe. We continue to speak about our team's need to play in these type of games. We've got 15 players (based in clubs) in Europe and also for those in Mexico it's good to compete against these individual national teams because the benefit goes to both the individual and the collective. We're going to give our best to win.feedback
