Luis Fernando Suárez: "We did not come to Qatar to sit or take photos"


The Costa Rica coach, Luis Fernando Suárez, said on Tuesday that they have not come to Qatar to "sit down or take photos", at the same time that he was confident ahead of this Wednesday's match against Spain, which will mean the debut of both teams in the World Cup.

"We did not come to sit still, to take photos of Qatar. That is not the reason for being of a team or a coach, even if it is Costa Rica and that makes me proud. Hopefully in the future they will be more courageous by always saying that they want to be world champions. If that's bad, it will continue to be bad, if I'm going to receive criticism, I'd rather receive it than say that it's someone who stayed calm just by being in a World Cup," said the coach at a press conference collected by the web of the Costa Rican Federation.

"The easiest speech as a coach would be to say that we're going to see what we do and then suddenly qualify for the second round, and if we don't qualify it's fine and if we lose it's because the others were better and we can't match up with our rivals. But when they eliminate us, then the criticism is that this coach is too calm or that he ingratiates himself with anything", he highlighted.

In this sense, the coach assessed his options for the match against Spain, where he hopes to deploy his "strengths." "It's going to be a very complicated match. We must be demanding in tactics and strategy, and we will seek to make the opposing team feel uncomfortable and then display our strengths. It will be one of those matches where the tension will be at its maximum, but the boys are very good disposition and spirit, and with desire to face this World-wide one", recognized.

For his part, captain Bryan Ruiz appealed to the "quality" of his team to try to get a good result from the duel. "This game is very important, because it dictates the possible round classification and we are going to play it brave. We know what Spain is playing for and the quality of the players they have, but we also have our quality and we know what we have to try to win this game," he said.

The 'tico' also praised the virtues of the Spanish team, although he wanted to equalize forces between the two teams. "I like the entire Spanish team and their style of play, in a certain way we have a similar level. We must make a very big effort to be able to compete with them. There are players like Gavi, Rodri, Busquets, Pedri, Morata who are the zone core, but our game will be very together to try to counteract what Spain does", he sentenced.
