The coach of the national team left his feelings after the tie against Chile.
The Colombian National Team had a complicated match against Chile and saved an important point that ensured that the process of Néstor Lorenzo continued without seeing a defeat.
Well, after the tie at the Monumental stadium, the Argentine coach left his feelings about the game where he highlighted the state of the field, his analysis of the match and the future of the process.
“It was difficult for us in the first half to stand on our feet, the state of the field for both of us, but we had a different plan, to start from the back and not share the ball too much. The second half was different, we stopped better and have more possession and we lack the final touch. We lack a lot of aggressiveness and finishing the plays better,” he commented at the beginning.
“Chile is going to go all out, all the numbers are back and it’s difficult for us to get the ball out of the hot zone. I think the condition of the field doesn’t help anyone and it helps the ball thrower and we don’t used to that. In that game, we lost in the first half, but when we came together, we were better,” he added.
Likewise, he appreciated the draw as a visitor: “I am calm because of work and because I see a future in the National Team and not only because of this match. We came to win and we will celebrate a draw, but the way of the game, it added, although I’m sure we will win it in the second half, but it didn’t happen to us.”
For his part, he gave his assessment of the double round of the Qualifiers: “This time we have a lot of debutants and the nerves are normal. The pressure was too much. “This is the first step. We are optimistic because there is a future, the group is strong. We know there are different moments in the process. Football can give you any surprise. We depend on the current situation of the players. It is very dynamic. So you can never be complacent and you have to look forward. ”
Finally, he explained the process of the Chileans: “Chile has a good coaching staff. They are in the process of replacement which is not easy. When Chile started with Bielsa and Sampaoli, they were at the top youth ranks and now it’s gone, so that’s where we have to look.
