I value the efforts of the players, especially the young people, who came to play a great game with so many injured players that we had, they seized the opportunity, "he said.
Analyzing some causes of this elimination of the "red" group from Antioquia, Calle explained: "During the tournament we lost 10 local points, things that did not allow us to reach a good level and that is what costs us to stay out of the eight. negative as a visitor, having won only 5 points is a very low number if you want to qualify and we are paying dearly.
