How is the group and recovery time?
“A lot of work has been done in that regard because the blow was so hard, a game that was almost controlled and got out of hand, a hard blow to everything, but the boys have improved mentally from that. We will work on this in the afternoon and tomorrow too. And make up a good group for the match against Costa Rica.
