Tena took off a weight

Tena unloaded the pressure, as usual, on Colombia, a team with much more weight and experience in world football.

The match. “We clearly know that they are the favorites, but they are great opportunities for us in Guatemala to measure our strength, to play against teams that make us grow and teach us things. We come with the hope of playing a great game”.

Colombia. “The old guard: Cuadrado, Radamel, James. And then a lot of people come, those who play in England, not to mention Luis Díaz, who is a star who has surprised locals and strangers. They have great quality in all positions. When they told us that we would play against Colombia, it was a great joy and illusion”.

Game idea. “Whoever plays, that will be their idea. They know that man for man they are better than us so they will want the ball, attack and put pressure on us. Part of that 4-3-3 that is their mother scheme and can lead to other things, but it is the one they like the most and dominate the best”.
