Guadalajara, Gall,. March 18, 2021. – The United States wins its first pre-Olympic match against a fierce Costa Rica that nearly clinched the result in the final round.
That’s why Nordic strategist Jason Chris, with everything and the score in his favor, understands that there has not been a good close to the match, so he promises that as the competition progresses they will correct the details.
“It was an important result for us, but we were able to do better with the ball and make better decisions. Fortunately we got the result. Now we have three points in our pockets and we are a team that will improve a lot as the tournament progresses,” he said from Jalisco.
If this score went to the side of the Americans, it was thanks to his goalkeeper David Ochoa, who had major plays to prevent his goal from being defeated, having covered at least four important goals, with his coach saying words of praise and encouragement. The future is looking for.
“Now Ochoa is at a better level and he did it in a great way for us. I think he was the most important player for us today. We believe Ochoa has a great future ahead,” Chris explained.
Finally, he agreed that he must adapt to a new playing system, which made them struggle and the simplest thing was to look for the easiest thing, but that is not in his genes.
“There is no doubt about that. The system we were playing is tough, it takes a lot of energy, a lot of running and it’s not easy. The easy way to play is to react and counterattack, but it’s not our DNA.”
