thumbnail Hello,

The Tricolor tactician says that the team had plenty of chances to put the Azzurri away...

Mexico coach Javier Aguirre has told his players not to get carried away after defeating Italy 2-1 in a pre-World Cup friendly.

Aguirre believes that with the amount of scoring opportunities el Tri created, they should have won the match by a bigger margin.

"We played a good game, but we should have scored more goals," Aguirre stated to Letelegramme.com after the match. "That is my only regret, not scoring more.

"It is a little worrying. We worked well as a team, but there is still more improvement to come.

"Beating Italy is a great satisfaction, as it's always hard to defeat a team at this level. And we did it in style.

"We were quicker than the Italians, who were probably a little tired. I saw that my players were supportive of one another, always making an option available.

"But it must be said that it's a warm-up match, and it will only give us a morale boost," the coach concluded.
