Hugo Droguett said he was excited about having scored his first Cruz Azul goal, but disappointed in the result.Hugo Droguett made his first goal with Cruz Azul count as he scored in la Maquina’s dramatic 3-3 draw with Pumas.
For the Chilean, getting the first tally was something he’d longed for.
“Scoring a goal is great but to do it in a game that means a lot is, well, motivating,” Droguett told Mexican daily Record. “I really did want to score a goal since we were already three weeks into the season. It was in my mind to score a goal for Cruz Azul and luckily I had the chance to do that.”
Droguett’s first goal with his new club earned the team a point. After la Maquina went up 2-0, Pumas scored three consecutive goals to take a 3-2 lead. But in the 85th minute, Droguett took a through ball, settled it and knocked it into the goal for the equalizer.
Even though the team did not lose, the result wasn’t exactly pleasing for Droguett, mostly because Cruz Azul was unable to erase from their minds losing to Pumas in the Apertura 2010 playoffs.
“The team was starting to get some revenge for that and after going ahead and playing well we let it slip away form our hands,” Droguett said. “It would have been very ugly but we were able to rescue something but obviously we’re not satisfied.”
