Francisco ‘Pacho’ Maturana, coach who won the Copa América in 2001 with the Colombian team, in an interview with Snail Radio He assured that he trusts the work of those led by the Argentine coach, but asked for peace of mind.

“I invite humility, it is evident that we are going to try to assault history and when one is going to do that, one goes slowly, almost on tiptoe. You don’t go away saying: ‘I’m going to win.’ Let’s feel like we’re going to win it (the title), but let’s not say it, let’s act crazy,” Maturana said.

And he added: “Without hope you cannot live. I once talked about it with Eduardo Galeano, he said that hope becomes a utopia and is useful for living. Something seems unattainable, but that becomes the inspiration of everyday life. I have never stopped having that illusion”.
