As Jorge Moreno explained, the Mexican players stood on the court with an air of “supremacy”, which was reflected in the way they exchanged glances; they stalked them in the game and tried to bait them. But the Guatemalan goalkeeper assured that he avoided paying attention to them because he was focused on the game; however, he did not fail to notice such behavior.
He accused Carlos Yulián Santos, captain of the Aztec team, of being the footballer who carried out this attitude the most in the game.

He expressed it this way before different media:
“The whole game they looked at us pa’bajo plus the captain. In a corner kick he went to me when I spoke, he turned to see me from head to toe; but we showed it on the field and the looks ate them up and they are going to leave sad for their country”.

And it is that throughout the game, the whole of the blue and white He had a greater command of the game as he opened the scoring first and managed to defend his goal until the penalty round, in which the winner of the U-20 was defined.
After the regulation 90 minutes were played, time in which both teams scored a goal, the score was still tied 1 – 1, so extra time was played. Given the lack of goals in the added minutes, the referee decreed that the winner of the contest would be defined from the eleven steps; so both countries devised the best strategy to emerge victorious.
The Guatemalan youth had already shown his abilities to stop penalties because during the second regulatory period he managed to stop a charge by Luis Pérez’s team from the penalty mark, this due to an infraction committed by his team. Moreno defended his goal on that play and took away Mexico’s illusion of winning the game.
