After Santos' 3-0 victory on Sunday night, goalkeeper and team captain Jonathan Orozco spoke to media and offered his insight as los Guerreros prepare for their first league road game on Friday against Atlas.
The 33-year-old veteran is going on his sixth tournament in Torreón and has five saves so far in two games, helping the team maintain a clean sheet at home.
“The truth is that the team is mentalized and eager to transcend, he said. "We took advantage of the fact that we were playing at home in these two games and it was very important to get three points with our fans.
The group had a lot of patience because in the first half, Juarez was well planted according to their game. In the second half, thanks to the good actions of our teammates, we liquidated the game."
Orozco has helped to transmit the ideas put forth by coach Guillermo Almada and says the team has adapted to perfection.
“Both in the preseason and in the previous games we began to understand what Guillermo Almada has been asking for and to understand his playing style; we have adapted to perfection and little by little the team is demonstrating its capacity."
That important adaptation to become an intense and attack-minded team has los Guerreros in first place heading into match-week three against an undefeated Atlas at Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara.
“It's important, and obviously we're going calmly and aware," he said of the team's current standing. "We've played two home games and now we have to see how we play as visitors and that the team does not change face, that it plays in the same way, and that it has the same boldness."
