“We’re here to do the job, to fight for it, to do our best,” one of the tournament’s heroes, who saved a penalty from Orbelin Pineda in the 87th minute, told TUDN.

“We knew it was going to be tough. Mexico is a great team, it’s playing well,” said the goalkeeper, who threw a dart at Mexican journalists who underestimated Venezuela.

“We have the humility to recognize our rivals, we don’t have the arrogance and ignorance of many Mexican journalists who have underestimated us. We take three very valuable points,” he shot.

Venezuela is serious in this Copa America. Two games, two wins and a big quarter-final. La Vinodinto overcame a poor first half to beat Mexico thanks to Salomon Rondon’s penalty goal and Rafael Romo’s wonder at the Sophie Stadium in Los Angeles.

Mexico will play in the final day of qualifying against Ecuador, who beat already eliminated Jamaica 3-1.

The team led by Argentine player Fernando Bautista is progressing rapidly. He already plays regularly and wins and he knows how to suffer because Tri’s troubles in the last minutes were total.

On the first day of Group B they surprised Ecuador (1-2) and today a Mexican team missed its captain Edson Alvarez, who was out for the whole match due to a muscle tear.

Orbelin Pineda equalized from the penalty spot five minutes from time, but Romo, the hero of the afternoon, kept it out.
