The history of this soccer club, -which occurred in Hidalgo, however which was made in Mexico City with victories in the 70s-, had actually won for the last time in the 1997 winter season tournament. For years, the” Azul “approached the cup sometimes, only to stop working in the last minutes of the specifying matches. Much so that the word” crosszulear” ended up being a word of use (and which is under evaluation by the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language) to talk about the moment when you make a mistake just prior to reaching what you desire. That is why we Mexicans (and lots of Latin Americans) stated, half jokingly and half seriously, that the cement team had a curse. Its not that Cruz Azul is a bad team. He has won several continental titles and frequently completes amongst the very best on the table. But he hadnt raised a glass for 23 years.

Unique case is Jesús Corona, the groups goalkeeper. For him, the triumph is even sweeter when he is 40 years old and has thrived against the Lagunero goalkeeper Carlos Acevedo, 25. “It is achieved thanks to the work, the commitment of this group and it gives me fantastic pleasure for the team, coaching staff and fans that currently deserved it,” Corona informed the Marca website.

A leader who knows the operation Cement coach Juan Reynoso was part of the Cruz Azul team that won the final against León in 1997 when he bet the team as captain and center-back. Peruvian by birth, however Mexican by conviction, yesterday Reynoso ended up being the very first coach to win both as a player and as a coach. Hes usually subtle, but throughout the tournament I make tactical choices that werent constantly popular. After a very soulless very first half, Reynoso put his group on the waist so that they provided their all on the court in the second half. “Reynoso screwed up everyone (at halftime), but delighted with the result, the group got up on time,” Pablo Aguilar informed Marca. For his part, Reynoso stated for the Claro site that “in some cases we are not in the ideal place and time, one goes back in time and makes memory, players and classification technicians passed by who might not have this achievement and has us in the clouds with what we achieve Life puts you where you should have, I promote Cata (Domínguez), Chuy (Corona) and (Adrián) Aldrete, who I have actually seen them cry in difficult times and today I saw them sob with joy. People from this club who are guaranteed of their future, this champion took away their dream and today it came to life.” Entrepreneurial lesson: Get begun in something you really know and trust your experience and the understanding you have actually obtained in your market. You have been offered a special point of view that, while not constantly obvious to others, will be based on empirical knowledge. AN INCREDIBLE STORY! @CruzAzul waited to repeat this postcard for 23 years and tonight, he ended the prize dry spell for his cause; Jesús Corona and Julio Domínguez, the captains. pic.twitter.com/vsfetKSCuP – Liga BBVA MX (@LigaBBVAMX) May 31, 2021 3.
