Given the situation, the players Nicolás Tripichio and Ezequiel Unsain came to calm Federico, despite being players from the opposing team. “What are you celebrating to the face for?”, the “millionaire” forward pointed out to the Defense and Justice players more than once.
The archer of the ‘hawks’ instead of being dazed, replied: “They are champions, they play well, they are the best. Go there ”.
