Colo Colo had to fight a lot at the Santa Laura Stadium to stay with the victory against Unión Española, winning just 1-0 on this date 16 of the 2021 National Championship.
One of the protagonists of the white win was Maximiliano Falcón, who headed up the scoreboard by starting the second half after the first 45 minutes with many wasted chances by the Cacique.
After the victory, El Peluca declared in conversation with TNT Sports that “You prepare for when you have to, it is to contribute to the team, not a rematch. I felt ready and we got the three points ”.
“I think we demonstrated on the court, we had six or seven very clear and their goalkeeper responded well. We are characterized by intensity and each divided ball is going to win it to win the game ”, added.
When asked about his future and the possibility of leaving, the Uruguayan was clear in saying that “I have a commitment with Colo Colo, they were only polls, there were talks and nothing else. I was focused on what I have to do. When opportunities come you have to be prepared or it takes its toll. I’m happy to play again ”.
“The group made it possible, last year beyond that things did not work out and we were down we were united, it was to train twice and three times and today things started to turn out. We want to be champion ”, Falcon concluded.
Now Colo Colo must mentalize what will be the first leg of the semifinals of the Chile Cup scheduled for this Wednesday, precisely before the same Spanish Union, in what will be the first game with an audience at the Monumental after more than a year.
