The American coach, Gregg Berhalter, assured this Saturday in the press conference prior to the match that they are focused on maintaining their dominance in the competition where they have emerged champions in the two editions that have been played so far, including the first final against The Tri.

“We are not pressured, for us it is one more opportunity. The Mexican National Team played a great semifinal and the pressure is on them. We will only seek to leave our legacy in the Nations League because we know what this tournament represents.”commented the North American strategist.

The United States coach, Gregg Berhalter, during the press conference held this Saturday prior to the final of the Concacaf Nations League against the Mexican National Team.

The United States National Team beat Jamaica in their semifinal tie with a score of 3-1 in extra time, while Mexico won with authority against Panama (3-0), so both teams reach the decisive stage inspired and in a good football moment.

“We want to win the third consecutive trophy and as I told you, leave our legacy. I have a team with great mental strength and a lot of resilience. “We are at our best to win this match.”added the strategist who analyzed the strengths of the team led by Jaime Lozano.

“They (Mexico) are more direct on offense. They have fast wingers, but we have people who can stop them”Gregg Berhalter said about his expectations for the match against the Mexicans who are looking for revenge after the defeat suffered in the final played in 2021.

“They are a team that we must not allow to score quickly as they did in the semifinals against Panama, that will be the key. “If we keep them at zero as the game progresses it will be difficult for them.”Berhalter continued about the strategy to achieve a good result against Mexico.

Finally, the American technical director spoke about the expectation of playing in front of a stadium in Dallas with a capacity for 80,000 people in which a large attendance is expected from the Mexican fans, so El Tri would play at home, something that Gregg Berhalter he downplayed it.

“Against Mexico is always a special match. In the United States there are followers from many countries, more so from Mexico. We know they are going to be noisy because it is a final, but we are prepared to face that.”commented the strategist.

The match between the United States and Mexico will be one of the most important that the Mexican team will be playing in 2024, which will also play the Copa América in the United States in the middle of the year.
