O: Si, gracias a dios. Para entrar ya hemos granados dos partidos y un empate y nada satisfecho sabemos que la mentalidad es entrar a los playoffs y el equipo esta.. esta enfocado para lograrlo.

H: esoo ehh tambien ahorita en Octobre, Cuba y los Estado Unidos van a jugar el amistoso historico en Havana, que se significa ese partido en tu opinion para el futbol en Cuba?

O: ahhh como grandes…sabemos que Cuba esta esta habriendo sus puertas a los futbolistas Cubanos para que puedan desarollarse en el futbol mundial y nada… Contento por esa oportunidad que tiene el equipo Cubano que una seleccion como los estados unidos vaya a Cuba a jugar.

H: I’m a member of La Barra Fuerza Verde and I’m going to be writing with Sounder at Heart. I wanted to just ask you a few brief/short questions…I know you just left practice with lots of sun so I’m going to be pretty quick.

It’s been three good matches the team has played/finished .. since thee… oh wait wait…since the big change…what have you noticed as the biggest change since Schmetzer took over and finished the last three (3) games.

O: Yeah.. thanks to god.. to start of yeah we won two and tied one but not at all satisfied, we know and have the mentality to make the playoffs and the team is focused to achieve that (make the playoffs)

H: Alright well also in October, Cuba and the USA will play a historic friendly in Havana! What does that signify/mean for Cuban football in your opinion?

O: Ahhh that’s great…we know that Cuba is opening it’s doors to Cuban soccer players so they can develop their skill in soccer worldwide and well I’m happy for the opportunity (for Cuba) that the Cuban Team has that a National team like the USA’s will go to Cuba to play.

H: Perfect brother… y last one..what is your favorite part of playing with Nico now that you have three good games played with him?

O: Yeah..no.. thankful to god for the opportunity to play here with Nico.. he is …like we’ve all found out in the many interivews a great player ..who has played with Uruguay in the world cups in Africa and Brazil…well.. im happy to have the opportunity to play with him…he’s a great player.
