According to the Argentine coach, the secret of victory was not in the gamebut in the character that his players put into it, especially in their definition from the 12 steps.

“It is true that clinging to a result as the Uruguayan team has done denotes a profile of the Uruguayan football (…) Penalties not only require skill, but also character”, Bielsa said at a press conference.
