On the change in attitude of the players. “Among the critical moments that a team can have, I highly value the tranquility of the players. There were moments when America dominated the game with the great technical quality that exists in its players and from the direction, but the players remained calm, we were offensive, we had the goal at zero for almost 94 minutes. I am very happy, in an oversight they tie us but we must continue with that conviction“.
