Q: How much confidence do you get from beating a good Houston team 4-1?

A: The confidence is fundamental but it’s not only from this past game, it’s also from the game against Portland where we had a good result.

Q: Are the crowds getting better and louder?

A: It’s always the same: it’s really impressive. Every time we get to the stadium we see that the stands are full. It’s really impressive.

Q: What did Miguel Almiron have to promise to give you to get to take that penalty kick on Saturday against Houston and complete his hat trick?

A: The guitar that they gave him after the game for taking a photo with the sponsors. Hopefully he will gave that to me.

Q: Do you play?

A: No, no.
