After weeks of removing the Selection mexican, orbelin Pineda breaks the silence after the World Cup failure. The AEK Athens player made clear his disappointment when they were eliminated in the group stage, as he believed that the team was ready to make history together with Gerardo Martino.
However, for Pineda the key point is not in the match against Poland or Argentina, but against Saudi Arabia, a match in which he himself started as a starter. The player revealed that Martino gave him his vote of confidence to do everything in 60 or 70 minutes, for which Pineda responded with an excellent match.

Unfortunately for the former Chivas player, things did not work out, since they were one goal away from qualifying at the time, so he believes that more could have been given. Finally Pineda confessed that his experience in Qatar 2022 was wonderful, but he will not deny that the end was not sweet, neither for him nor for anyone on the team.
How did you handle the call? Pineda responds
“It was difficult to handle the situation, they always talked about him, people were no longer satisfied with him but at the end of the day, he trusted 26 players, some players had to play, others didn’t and well, those who were playing, taking advantage of the moment, knew that it had to be done in the best way, the only thing you can do is support your teammates, the coach because we all work and go to the same side” he commented to MARCA Claro.
