Juan Gris Zavaleta- La Indiana
“We need this victory like water. We had a very good start in the Gold Cup and then two very bad games so today against a very tough team like Lechuza Caracas we had to do our best, and happily we did it. We had a Silver Cup really complicated, with injures and the reassemble of the team in the Gold Cup, so to be in the semifinals is very good”.
