first_imgPHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania:MICHAEL HECTOR has apologised to his teammates after two horrendous mistakes by the central defender led to two Mexican goals during Sunday’s Gold Cup final.Hector was at fault when Mexico scored twice in the first 16 minutes of the second half, as they went on to win the match 3-1 against Jamaica.”We’re disappointed, obviously,” he said after the match. “We felt that we played well … so I’m gutted for the players. I said to the players in the dressing room I’m sorry for the mistakes that caused the goals, that they didn’t deserve this, in a final especially.”As Hector’s teammates filed off during the presentation ceremony, the tall 23-year-old stood and watched Mexico celebrate as they lifted an unprecedented seventh title in the 13 competitions contested. The United States have won five and Canada once.FEELTHEPAIN”I wanted to watch them lift the trophy to make me realise what I’ve done and never to be in that situation again … that’s why I stayed out there and watched them lift the trophy,” Hector explained. “I don’t want to be in that situation again, I wanted to feel the pain of losing the final.”Jamaica were playing in the final for the first time, being the first Caribbean team to do so. Additionally, they had beaten the United States in the semi-finals at Atlanta 2-1 to record their first win over the Americans in their country.Jamaica also earned the Fair Play Trophy.”It’s a proud moment for the country to be the first Caribbean team to play in the final. We’ve positives to take. This team can go far in the future and, hopefully, we can do that, get in another final and win it next time,” Hector said.”It’s tough to take at the moment, but I think in the next few days or weeks, we’ll look back at this tournament and take the positives and be proud of what we’ve achieved,” the defender added. – Audley Boydlast_img read more
