[Mexico defender Alvarez disappointed El Tri won’t get to face Messi] It would’ve been really nice to face Messi. But his health comes first. Personally, it would’ve great to play against him.
We’ve shown that in adversity, when we are the underdogs we step up. I like these challenges… what better way to show our quality than now, against a great team in front of their fans? We all want to play the game already

[He’s currently the starting holding midfielder in Martino’s 4-3-3 but went to the World Cup last year as a right back] Really, I’m comfortable in the middle, I feel really comfortable as a five. I don’t dislike playing center back either. It’s a position where I started my career, even going back to the academy days, when I was just starting I was playing center back. To be honest, right back isn’t my strongest position. At the end of the day, though, I’ve always said that’s football and at the time the manager needed me there. I wanted to show him I that I was able to do it

I feel really fortunate to have been in with the group because with this I grew daily
[It was a frustrating end to his America tenure, with injuries limiting him and keeping him out of the Liguilla in the Clausura] Possibilities are opening up. I’m really happy to be more and more close to this dream that I desire with all my heart and hopefully it will be the best for me

[After initially being separated from family upon moving to the Netherlands] Now I can use the time to be with my family. My daughter is doing well, she is healthy and that is the most important thing. It is nice to see how she grows and learns new things every day. That is then it’s great that I can now see that every day
