Fresh from a second half winner to see off Gold Cup darlings Guadeloupe, Mexico star Pavel Pardo is eyeing the chance to finally break their American slump against the U.S. National Team in the final.
“In life you get opportunities,” stated the Bundesliga champion. “The last year has been tough and we’ve been unable to beat the U.S in U.S. territory – but like I said, in life you get opportunities.”
As far as the beaten underdogs, Guadeloupe coach Roger Salnot.
“We feel proud,” their coach he told reporters. “We came into this competition with no pressure on our backs.”
“We came to play good football and to let people know that Guadeloupe are a good football team.”
