All quotes by Juan Carlos Osorio on Mexico

They are very young, very hungry for success and hopefully the ones that you mentioned will go there, get enough experience and then they will bring it back to the national team. That can only strengthen the squad, the depth of the squad, and hopefully we will continue growing as a national team.feedback

It's very rewarding in Antuna's case because from the U-20s in Korea we wanted to bring three players: Alejandro Mallorga, Edson (Alvarez) and Atuna, . Unfortunately we couldn't do it at the end, but I think it's very good for Mexican football that European clubs are looking at us with the possibility to sign new players.feedback

We're again playing against the champions of Europe. We continue to speak about our team's need to play in these type of games. We've got 15 players (based in clubs) in Europe and also for those in Mexico it's good to compete against these individual national teams because the benefit goes to both the individual and the collective. We're going to give our best to win.feedback

We're talking about the champion of the world, who everyone admires. There's a big difference between being young and having experience, that's where they have an advantage on us in the sense that it's a group between 22 and 25 years old who, despite their young age, all have more than 100 games in the first division. Many of them have been champions in their club and they've been in the national team system.feedback

You have mentioned that Germany is a very young squad; they have only one player who is 20, [Benjamin] Henrichs, who plays with Javier [Hernandez] at Bayer Leverkusen. There are two who are 21, [Niklas] Sule and [Julian] Brandt, who are the same age as [Mexico winger] Hirving Lozano.feedback

Unfortunately it looks like Diego Reyes had a hamstring problem. We'd thought about it because he'd come in playing all the previous games, like a lot of the guys, that's why we rotated, made various rotations, the day of the game against New Zealand. Unfortunately, we lost Carlos Salcedo and today Diego started again. We had planned to give him rest or at least not start with him.feedback

We competed really well. We're continuing to construct a team that every time goes out and shows more determination and skill.feedback

Mexico are getting more and more used to playing against teams in different settings. We played in a stadium of more than 40,000 and against the hosts. Winning is very important for Mexican football.feedback

We knew it would be a very hard game against a very strong opponent. They are the hosts and they really needed to win this game. They had everything to win and nothing to lose. I think we played very well. We are still building a team that is able to show that they have the skills and determination to play against anybody.feedback

This is something Mexican players really care about. We really care about giving everything until the bitter end. We play with strength, virility and spirit. Hirving fought for everything against the goalkeeper and really deserved that goal.feedback

We could have scored more goals if we had been able to circulate the ball better but we understand that our lads maybe had too much adrenaline. We deserved this victory and we're really happy.feedback

I think, in some cases, the opponents scored very quickly [in other matches] even if they maybe didn't deserve it. But our squad has shown again how resistant we are. We fight very hard, until the end, as we've seen in all the games we've played.feedback

I honestly think that this is the perfect scenario for Mexican football. We play away from home, against the host team, with a lot of support from their fans, and fighting for the qualification. We need to control the game and to show to ourselves, especially, that we can compete under such difficult circumstances.feedback

We're again going to try to show the idea of play we have against team who sit back and counter with everyone. In this case, that's the question because of the opponent's need to seek out the result. We'll know this from the starting XI, but we're going to be ready for the possible situation the game presents us with.feedback

It's an extraordinary scenario, because it gives Mexican football and this group of players the possibility of showing that we have the capacity to take on this responsibility, that we have the talent and the determination to play in this scenario. If we do well, we will take a step forward, and we keep growing as a team capable of playing against any team.feedback

We've studied all our opponents and we believe we have great possibilities tomorrow. We think that New Zealand will think about playing direct. It's a very different opponent from what Portugal was, but complicated in the same way. We're thinking of moving our structure a bit, of refreshing the team to go out to compete and try to win the game using our strengths.feedback

Every game has its importance. Now we have this result and we're going to focus and concentrate on the next game. It's going to be a very difficult opponent who is going to give everything in the next game and we're going to try to win and advance.feedback

We had almost 60 percent of the possession. It's deserved and what Mexico have done deserves praise, to go toe-to-toe with the champions of Europe. We played against a team at a high level. There are a lot of things to improve. We lacked a little bit of efficiency. The Kazan Arena is amazing. There was a great atmosphere, we felt very close to the fans and the pitch was really perfect. We're very happy with this first game.feedback

I think that, when football people enjoy the way we play, especially against a team like the one we faced, it's very positive.feedback

We got almost 60 percent of possession. What Mexico did, going directly up against the European champion, is commendable and deserves praise.feedback

They're coming here to win, which is wonderful for the tournament. You can see they are taking this very seriously. It's the same with Chile. It's an honour to play against the best teams in the world and that's what Mexico really needs.feedback

Right now we have two main concerns. Trying to combine all that, plus preparing ourselves in altitude to play in Mexico is quite difficult for us to accommodate all those factors. However, we think that we are going to have two very good groups that will give the chance to compete, with a great chance to win all the games that we have.feedback
