It was not possible because, among other things, Brazil is not Korea. Huge superiority of the Cariocas (not only in penalties) in every way.
The struggle and effort were not enough because, like many situations in life, more virtues are required than desires. Unfortunately it was the turn of the lagoon player Eduardo Aguirre who was “speechless” in the first collection.
As happened to Gorriarán last Sunday.
It usually happens almost at the least expected moment. They forced us to think and remember that tricolor from London who did know and was able to overcome those in the same yellow shirt.
The story is usually cruel and puts the same opportunity face to face again as an option for victory.
Now it was up to the Amazonians, although the fight was always present.
Was “Jimy” Lozano wrong about something? Do not; because he tried the same as his directed. Possible penalty takers with supposedly more experience were off the field.

Lesson in life that will last forever. Meanwhile, what has been danced so far, nobody removes it.
Last Saturday they offered a huge soccer concert against Asians. Against the South Americans they could not.
Where does the difference lie? Is it due to the rival? Is it a matter of mentality? Was the occasion put to the test? Did the nerves fail?
Almost the entire game against Brazil, it seemed that the ball was burning them, they did not want it, they did not know what to do with it. It is the life lesson that offers us abundant benefits and then take away the illusion.

Any world sporting event awakens sustainable energies, and this is one of those.
Somehow, we could have imagined that the bar was high because Brazil was at the crossroads, and these yellows also remember it, whether they were in 2012 or not.
Rematches hold even if the actors are different.
It is enough for something, and probably more worthy than the other team that succumbed to our neighbors.
The “gold” could not be neither in the so-called tournament nor in the medal.
More opportunities open up because as in any human interaction, learning and growth do not stop.
