The reactions to Comunicaciones’ victory over Motagua in the final of the Concacaf League 2021 did not wait.
From former National League players and teams to international sports commentators have come together to recognize the historic feat of the Guatemalan team.
In addition, fans have turned to the victory creams they achieved for the first time in this regional tournament.
Los albos beat Motagua, who lost its third final in this League, 6-3 in the series, with an extraordinary night from Ecuadorian Juan Anangonó who scored a hat-trick and gave the assist for the fourth goal of Junio Lacayo.
The second leg game was won by the creams 4-2. In the first leg, in Tegucigalpa, they also won 2-1.
Former Communications players such as Dwight Pezzarossi, now Mario Acevedo’s technical assistant in Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa, wrote this message on Twitter:
congratulations @CremasOficial, historical and unique what they achieved. It is a joy for our football. A fraternal hug for CT, players, collaborators and senior leadership of the club. Enjoy it
