“We will work for what it takes to play Chile, it is a team with skilled players, especially Alexis Sanchez – he is a very dangerous guy.”
“It will be a very difficult match and we will concentrate very hard in order to win the ball and keep it.”
“The important thing is to stay strong.”
Mexico has its work cut out against Chile, who is proving to be one of the strong Copa America contenders.
