  1. You're right, was a golden opportunity for those reasons and others could no longer take advantage, hence the world met “magical” González, Salvadoran best player of that era, It was an accident that we paid dearly, disorganization, lack of experience and the conflict was secondary, I attended several warm up games and it was quite normal. I think we never will remove those 10 goals. Greetings from El Salvador .
