Statements from Colombia
Néstor Lorenzo spoke before the match: “Mexico are a very balanced team in all their lines, who play good football, who lead from the back. The problem is the difficulty of knowing where we are going to recover and how. They team up well and run down the flanks, those are Mexico’s strengths in the World Cup; that’s the information we give to the players and what worries me.”
