The Chilean team showed a poor performance and fell irrevocably 3 to 1 against Colombia at the Roberto Meléndez Metropolitan Stadium, within the framework of the tenth day of the qualifying rounds for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
With this result, the Red was very complicated and is located in the third to last place in the standings with only seven units. Unfortunately triple qualifying date for those led by Martín Lasarte, who only obtained a point.
After the defeat against the Cafeteros, Claudio Bravo faced the microphones in a press conference, where he analyzed the commitment against Colombia, how difficult it is to play at the height and also maintained that there are still possibilities to go to the next planetary appointment.
In the first instance, the Colo Colo exporter pointed out that “We should not excuse ourselves on the triple date, but it is complex having two games outside in difficult conditions such as the altitude of Quito, the heat and humidity of Barranquilla. But we are not going to excuse ourselves with that. Today we did not see each other as we did with Brazil at home, with the order in Ecuador “.
“Today was one of those days when you have to draw lessons, you have to learn, continue with the hope that we can qualify for a World Cup and get better results. It is complex when you have three dates and two visits, yes “, he complemented.
About playing at height, Bravo commented that “It is exhausting, but you have to be there, live it, train in these places, feel what the altitude means, the heat of Barranquilla, the humidity, but that doesn’t sound like an excuse. We must continue to improve, the possibilities are there and they depend on us “.
Despite this penultimate, the Betis goalkeeper does not lose faith in going to the next World Cup. “The Playoffs are not over yet, mathematically there are options, there are many points to play for. It depends on us. If we get back to doing things in a good way, if we compete, things will go ahead to qualify. Today is a day to learn and take lessons ”, he claimed.
“We tried until the last second, we did not lower our arms, we did not see ourselves as we had been competing but we tried to do our best. With fatigue, fatigue, with people who did not arrive in optimal conditions. That is admirable and I rescued it, wanting to be , fight until the end and not lower your arms. This is what we will do in these Qualifiers “Claudio Bravo finished.
