It was a difficult game because it happened in León, but we were very focused and I was given the opportunity to enter, who told me Luis Fernando TenaBecause I was only going to enter if needed and I had the fortune to enter and be able to define the match, “Hermosillo recalled.

The story was written when he was 10 minutes on the court. Angel David Comizzo He intentionally kicked the light blue forward. The blood gushed from the cheekbone of the cement worker who was in charge of collecting the penalty to give La Machine the championship.
