New Estudiantes goalkeeper praises continental counterparts for winning a record 15th title as his team went down by three goals in the final of the competition on Sunday evening
Despite lamenting the unfortunate injuries that plagued his team, the new Estudiantes keeper was quick to congratulate a record breaking Uruguayan side.“That was fair - Uruguay as champions - because they had a very solid team, and the attackers [Forlan and Suarez] are two lions, they are among the best strikers in the world," Villar told reporters after the game.
He added: "We had good games in the beginning of the championship, but after that the team went from huge to small. It cost us because we played a very physical football. It is not an excuse but we had many injured players.
"We got in the final because we had guts and luck. Today [Sunday] in the second half, we had the ball a lot and created chances but it did not work."
