News for June 23, 2010
It’s the day after and of course that means tons of news surrounding the national team.
So what are the most important things that you should be informed about?
Perez says the team isn’t afraid of Argentina, Martin Palermo warns about the Mexican team, Chivas owner Jorge Vergara asks that ‘Bofo’ be included, and a politician has the idea of Aguirre explaining his tactics.
Oscar ‘Conejo’ Perez spoke out today, saying that the Mexican team isn’t afraid of Argentina and that El Tri has quality players as well.
“We have to play them one on one. We don’t have a reason to be afraid of them. We have people like Gio(Dos Santos), Chicharito, and Guille(Franco) that during one on ones can make a difference.
“(Facing Argentina) motivates us because they’re a great rival. We’re looking to change history; we’re 90 minutes from advancing and we have to play for everything.”
Argentine striker Martin Palermo advised on Mexican football, noting the progression of Mexican football.
“Mexican football has grown a lot. The growth can generally be seen. We’ll have to have enough precautions, precautions because of their potential. The most important thing is what we’ll do, what the Argentinian National team is doing.”
And Jorge Vergara suggests playing ‘Bofo’ against Argentina due to his performances against the Argentine club teams.
“More than revenge, it’s the moment to use strategy and tactics. ‘Bofo’ is respected and feared in Argentina after what happened with Boca Juniors. I think he would be a player that attracts marking and he’d be a useful distractions. I think the speed of the young players is an important element against the Argentines because if we’re slow, we’re going to be taken by the train.”
Vergara is alluding to ‘Bofo’s’ performance against Boca Juniors in the Copa Libertadores while at Chivas in 2005 and has history with Martin Palermo as both were sent off in a game.
Mexican legislator, Eric Rubio Barthel, suggested booking Javier Aguirre to speak to the chamber about his technical decisions against Uruguay.
In an interview with Tele Formula he said:
“Yes, I spoke about the necessity of Aguirre explaining his tactics, but I don’t think it’s feasible. As an official I ask the manager to give an explanation. We Mexicans need to know what he did.”
