Speech from Mexico’s coach Javier Aguirre:
I would just like to mention that the moment that I decided to take on the charge of leading the National team I asked for 11 warriors on the field. This is exactly what I am witnessing & have witness before my eyes during our previous, and current matches, training, & activities. Warriors with hot blood running through their veins, with unbreakable bones, and fiery legs.
Everyone of us has such an eagle warrior within us, that warrior who leans on the strengths of : concentration, determination, and the desire to win everyday. Today I urge more than 11o million Mexican warriors to join in the daily battle. May we all who are present here today be ready & disposed to fight on. Let us not think twice & chase after the “ball” that motivates us everyday. I invite you to fight on as the true warriors we are in: your jobs, your homes, with your people. Let us not loose for an instant the purpose for which we wake. Win, win, win absolutely in all we endeavor!
It moves me to know that behind these young men stands a country, our Mexico! A country with an unmitigated & unyielding courage & hunger, with a heart that will beat so loudly that we will hear it everywhere. Let us believe in ourselves, let us believe that we are a country that was born with everything necessary to triumph. Let us believe & understand that we are warriors and as such we will return. Thank you very much & good night.
