Jorge Luis Pinto blasts Mexico

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- Costa Rica manager Jorge Luis Pinto isn't taking anything for granted but is merciless in his analysis of the Mexico national team ahead of Tuesday's match.

"We will be facing a sick and shattered team," he said, adding that he is not taking anything for granted. "However (despite being sick and shattered), it is going to be a tough game like the one against Honduras. Honduras had its qualification on the line, the same as Mexico, and therefore it will be a tough game."

He also recognizes, "we would love to score a lot of goals against them, but they won't be an easy rival; they will be tough, and that is the team we will be facing."

Pinto said his players are committed, eager, and mentally prepared to go up against Mexico with a conviction and hunger to get the win.

Pinto also showed annoyance because he was not sure of the level of commitment Costa Rica had against Honduras. This was also expressed by many of its own fans and communications media, saying that it showed a certain level of tepidity in the game.

Although he both asked for and offered respect, in the end his characteristic hot bloodedness came forth, and he said that Mexico is experiencing just what it deserves because of its arrogance and lack of respect for the Central Americans.

"This is why it is where it is and can find itself sitting at home for the World Cup Finals, and it would deserve it, too," said Pinto, when asked similar questions from three different reporters about the arrogance referred to by Joel Campbell and the suspicion, which he said was unfounded, of the way his team played against Honduras.

"Anyone who thinks this way is completely mistaken. I have seen serious reporters in Mexico and they never talk about this silliness. I’m sure there are two or three reporters in Mexico who are clowns dressed up as journalists."

"They must learn to respect other countries, and the Costa Rican players. They tried to do what they should be doing, despite failing, and they say that this is not the case. This is Mexico disrespecting Costa Rica, and therefore they are paying the price, because they (the Mexicans) disrespect everyone: Honduras, Panama, El Salvador," he said.

One reporter gives us testimony from Costa Ricans who directly doubted the commitment of the Costa Ricans against Honduras, but Pinto does not accept this argument.

"No, don't tell me your made-up gossip that the Costa Rican fans have their doubts. You (the Mexicans) have problems, and will soon be eliminated from World Cup qualification, and so you suddenly find us to be guilty of something, and Honduras, and Panama as well. You are the guilty ones (if you get eliminated from qualifying)."

Likewise, Pinto recognizes that he will face Mexico with the same team that beat the United States, which is to say a lineup that sees the return of Campbell, Tejeda, and Oviedo to its ranks.
