Lorenzo: “We came to win, we won’t celebrate a draw”

Néstor Lorenzo is not satisfied with the results of the Chilean team. He still thinks that in the second half they can win with changes that give a different face than the one shown in the first 45 minutes. However, given how the game went, he believes his players behaved well.

According to Lorenzo, this match is very different from the one played in the city of Barranquilla against Venezuela where with everything done on the field, the team deserves many goals. This one, however, was played against an opponent that needed and with all its numbers.

The coach accepted that it continued to be difficult for the team in the early stages, he was not surprised by what Chile did on the field, he talked about the playing field that was not suitable for any of the teams and believed that the Qualifying process was long and In how many points does the undefeated lose.

Analysis of the match: “I think it was difficult for us in the first half to get up. The condition of the field for both of us, but it was difficult for us, we lost the second ball. They complicated us. In the second half we stood up better , from then on we had more possession and a better game. We missed the last seam. “We need a little more aggression to finish games.”

The drawing in the difficult field: “I am calm because of the work and because I can see the future. Not because of today’s game or because of the result. We came to win and we don’t celebrate a draw, but the way the game happened it adds up. In the second half I was almost sure we were going to win and it didn’t happen to us.

Defeated in the first half: “I’m worried, but there are different scenarios. I don’t compare this game with Barranquilla, but I criticize Barranquilla because they closed the roads for us and in the second half it accelerated and won well. The result is too narrow for what was intended. I didn’t stay worried there. This one is different. They came out with everything, all the numbers back, with a lot of hierarchy and it was difficult for us to get the ball out of the hot zone, from the middle to the outside or forward. It complicates us, it confuses our game and I think that the condition of the field doesn’t help anyone to play well, but it helps more for those who cut and throw balls and we don’t have a lot of height to play like that. When we got the ball at our feet and we met and partnered, we were ahead in the second half.

The undefeated: “This is just the beginning, this is the first step. We are optimistic because we see that we are working well, there is a future, the group is strong. We know there are different moments in the process. Let’s hope that we can spend some time without losing, but here on every date we can win, lose. Now, we will hardly be with Mina in the next game, if she is torn it will be difficult. It is so dynamic that you are never satisfied and calm. “

The Chilean National Team and its work

Chile’s attitude: “I’m not surprised at all. They have decisive players, but hey, the game is 90 minutes long and we have to go through moments of anxiety. If you lose in the middle of the field and you don’t make three or four passes in a row, that worries me.”

Working hours: “You cannot work with this type of player. They have arrived working, they have a category. Sometimes luck, hurry, many are playing Qualifier for the first time. I gave a little nervousness. “They are just starting out and they have to get used to it.”

Chile: “From the outside and with respect, they have a good coaching staff. It is in the process of replacement which is not easy. At the beginning of the successful process, there are excellent generations seen in tournaments and now I don’t see Chile in the youth tournaments. Here we have to find the origin. In the National Team we want them to come from the Under 15s, with the projection of a senior National Team and in many countries we see the more hegemony. We need to improve that as well.”
