The historic participation of the Chilean women’s team in the Tokyo Olympics came to an end. La Roja fell 1-0 against the locals, for the last match of Group E, and could not advance to the next phase.
The defeat of the national squad was marked by a shot by Francisca Lara that hit the post and was not a goal, in the most controversial play of the match, which was analyzed by Karen Araya.
“I think it was a goal, but there is technology and VAR. We were close, but unfortunately it was not possible, “he told TVN the player from Santiago Morning.
“It is a very difficult moment, we wanted to take the game, but unfortunately it was not like that, we had a very tough opponent. Now we have to keep working and try to be in the Games and a World Cup again,” he added.
Meanwhile, Carla Guerrero said through tears: “We gave ourselves 100%. Apologies to the people that maybe the results were not given. I have always said that the support of the people has been unconditional. We gave it our all. You have to know that our reality is different from that of the other teams, so we feel like winners. “
Finally, he added: “To my family that I apologize, because I was not up to the task.”
