The midfielder of the Uruguay national team Federico Valverde regretted this Thursday not having had “the luck of other times” in the shot that crashed into the post of the Korean goal and lor deprived of victory over the final in the presentation at the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
The Real Madrid star admitted that he fulfilled “a dream” by making his debut with the “Celeste” shirt in the World Cup but regretted not having been “lucky” in the shot that hit the top of the right corner 44 minutes into the second weather.
“One imagines that he is going to enter but I have not had the luck of other times. I have to keep trying because it is one of my qualities”said Valverde, who attended the press conference at the Education City stadium for having been chosen as the figure of the party.
“I enjoyed a lot but I must admit that I was nervous before the game. In the end it was a nice experience and I’m happy,” added the 24-year-old “Pajarito”.
In his analysis of the match, Valverde was self-critical and blamed himself for not having been able to get the ball to the attackers more clearly, but he also highlighted the good pressure from South Korea.
“We did not find the spaces and because of me the ball did not reach the top. We also lacked mobility and decided badly in certain plays due to haste. It’s normal because it’s a debut and being anxious for victory we ran out of patience but I’m proud of the team,” Valverde concluded.
