Despite this fear that exists within the team, the azulcrema midfielder clarified that the players of the azulcrema squad will not save anything and will play to the fullest in front of the team of the Portland and the rest of the CONCACHAMPIONS.
“As a player you always want to play and that does not change, they do tell us to play a game I am delighted to play a game and it will always be the same regardless of the circumstances, on the other hand, I always have to thank the fans for the support and that they know that we always have the ambition and the hunger to be champion in any tournament, “he said. Cordova in order to ESPN.
Finally Cordova stressed that despite his hierarchy in CONCACAF, the America no favorite is marked in front of Portland.
“We try not to relax because as soon as you relax there begin to be negative situations in which it is difficult to return, we need to take each game as if it were a final and keep going until the tournament is literally over because our obligation is to win any competition that Let’s face it, “he concluded.
