Even though the "Joya" of the Mexican team did not score, he was decisive for the Mexican squad to feel confident and reflect it on the scoreboard, which happened as the Mexican team won against the "Ticos" with a score of 2-0.

Luis Perez gave his opinion on the presence of Marcelo Flores in the Mexican U-20 National Team

The coach of the Mexican Under 20 national team, Luis "Lucho" Perez gave his impressions about the match and explained how he sees Marcelo Flores, the young promise of Arsenal Under 20. 

"Marcelo is on the rise, it is important that he carries out his process in his club, he has told us that he feels excited, we want him and all the players to consolidate in their clubs". 

The coach, who was by the side of his selected players throughout the match, knows how important it is for Marcelo Flores to feel that he is very important for the Mexican national soccer team, as he knows that Canada will not give up until they manage to take Flores. 

The goals in the friendly match against Costa Rica U-20 were scored by two promising young players

As is already known, it was not Marcelo Flores who scored, but Fidel Ambriz, midfielder of Leon, and Alí Ávila, a player who plays for Rayados de Monterrey, who showed the potential they can reach when the context in which they are in is the right one. 

Ambriz was in charge of opening the scoring with a long-range shot that gave his teammates confidence and gave them the lead in the match. 

Later, Avila found himself in front of the Costa Rican goal and fearlessly gave the Mexican team the victory with a powerful shot. 

The match was held for El Tri to prepare for the Concacaf U-20 Championship 2022, a tournament in which Honduras will be the host, but for which there is no definite schedule yet. 

This match was the first of two that the Mexican U-20 soccer team will play against its Costa Rican counterpart, to get ready for the CONCACAF tournament.

Marcelo Flores, the jewel that Canada's national soccer team wants

It is no secret that the player has been in the sights of the Canadian squad for a long time, and even in January of this year it was known that Flores was included in a list of players that John Herdman, the coach of the Canadian national soccer team, had at his disposal.

And that list was intended to serve as a preliminary list of the names of the players the coach wanted for the preparation camp before the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers.

In other words, Marcelo Flores was not only in the national team's sights, but he was practically taken into account to be part of the team

Later it was learned that the Canadian team wanted the player to play in the current World Cup Qualifiers, but to his misfortune, the promising young player who plays for Arsenal U-20 is currently playing preparation matches with the Mexican U-20 national team.
