“At minute 60, the teacher Osorio sent for me and asked me to try to be vertical and to take advantage of the spaces and that was the goal. Herrera sends the chopped pass, he won the ball and Tecatito was also closing in and when the goalkeeper threatened me and I threw it at the first post ”.
Damm pointed out that many fans questioned his goal against the catrachos because it was not so aesthetic and they believed that it was luckily the score.
