The striker who plays for América de México was present for the first time in the 2-0 defeat against Honduras (team led by Reinaldo Rueda) in the quarterfinals of the Concacaf Nations League.
Quiñones entered the 73rd minute of the match, when the Mexican team was already losing 2-0 against Rueda’s team. Although the Colombian played for the first time with the North American team, he received criticism for his arrival in that country.
One of the most blunt critics of Quiñones was the Mexican sports journalist, David Faitelson, who works on the ‘TUDN’ network, when he first saw the Colombian from América de México in Jaime Lozano’s call for the first time.
“He is not a phenomenon, if he were a phenomenon he would not be playing in America, with all due respect; He would be playing for Bayern Munich, Manchester City or Real Madrid. “He is a footballer who has an important level, but in tonight’s lineup there are two footballers who play in the European Champions League.”Faitelson noted after Mexico’s defeat.
Mexico will now have to host the Catracha team this Tuesday, November 21, for the second leg of the CONCACAF Nations League.
