Marco Fabian wasn't shy about his thoughts regarding Mexico's scoreless draw against South Korea last Thursday in Newcastle.
"The good thing is we didn't lose," Fabian said after the match. "South Korea was a fast, strong, intense team. We played our role well, we tried, both teams attempted to score but this draw isn't bad, we didn't lose"
Fabian came off in the 85th minute in favor of Raul Jimenez, who nearly broke the tie in injury time.
"All of our matches will be intense but [yesterday] was a start, we both came out with a lot of attitude but a little less [skill] and in the next game we need to free ourselves and show our quality," the Chivas forward said.
With the next group match right around the corner, Fabian insisted that the team must switch gears and prepare for its upcoming challenge.
"If we beat them (Gabon) we can think about qualifying [to the knockout stage], so this will be the most important match of all," he finished.
