Alajuela.- Experienced players in the country raise their hands not to be discarded in the National Team for Qatar 2022.
And at the same time they pose a challenge to young players.
Christian Bolaños, a purple and Tricolor referent, mentioned that he and other teammates are at the command of coach Luis Fernando Suárez.
“There is always that hunger, from my part I obviously know that it is a different moment, but we are soccer players, we want to compete, and the National Team belongs to everyone, not one that has played good games.
“You have to work twice as hard, the tie will not be easy, I watched the games and the rivals are complicated, but for me all national players and those from abroad have the same chance,” said Bolaños.
“If we review 3-4 years ago, we have made a difference, from me to see Michael with the same desire, just like me, because the mental part stands out.”
The skilful midfielder makes it clear that there is still an illusion to defend La Roja de La Sele and in the physical aspect as well.
“We still have that desire to continue showing, even though we have done everything in our careers, but knowing that it is a knockout year … In the group we think that from the youngest to the oldest they will work for that, regardless of the moment. where it is, ”he said.
“I believe that each person and each body is different. I understand Bryan (Ruiz) a little, if one analyzes coldly, everything he has given to the National Team, the moment he was going through, it is normal for him to feel like this, to feel exhausted, but he should not rush.
“He is very important for the National Team. And when things don’t go the way you want, there are players who carry more weight and it is normal for him to have made that statement, but he must be calm, because if there is quality I know it could help a lot ”.
