The technical director of the so-called “Tricolor” stated that: “I still had to share the field with Ochoa in the national team when La Volpe I called him for the games and from there you always saw that mettle, that calmness, the character of a competitor, of a leader. So if he had all that at 19 years old, can you imagine now 20 years later,” highlighted the national coach.

And he added that: “Memo beyond the fact that he is the captain, he is someone that we would like to have for a long time to come in the national team.”but I don’t want to get ahead of myself, the truth is that if he continues in a First Division in Italy it is because he can continue competing at the highest level,” he said.

Lozano made this analysis when making a summary of the things and notes he obtained from the tour of Europe. which he carried out with his coaching staff and several members of the National Teams Commission, with the purpose of talking closely with the players who play in Europe and who are considered in his preliminary list of 60 players that he will consider for the Nations League duel. against Panama and for the Copa América games that will take place next June.

“I think that Ochoa continues to be the greatest reference in the national team, he is an example of professionalism, of character, of what it should be like to represent your national team and he always has been, because he has always competed where he stops,” explained the national strategist.

He also highlighted that: “I don’t know what can happen in another six months or a year and a half, it seems to me that all those attributes can continue to help him to be competing at the highest level,” he said.
