“No, very happy, it is a pride that he can receive us, very proud of my land, very proud of Mexico and, as you said just now, how proud you felt when you looked at me with the flag; It is a dream come true for me or at that moment I wanted Mexico to feel the support from me with the flag and it is the same that I receive from them, incredible support every day and it is what they give me and Víctor ( González) the strength and the courage to go forward to pitch and give everything on the hill ”, Julio commented.
