The Canadians played one of their best games, and when they reached a draw they sought victory and complicated Mexico’s game. Sometimes they are not integrated.
“We had a team problem, which is more noticeable in some areas than in other areas, and we make the mistake of focusing on one or two players with low performance in the first half; This is solved because it is done at the joint level, in any group. We have to work to be more committed to that. “ I notice.
