    Tigres’ Meza: “We can give more”

    SAN NICOLAS DE LOS GARZA, Mexico – For the third consecutive season, Tigres has reached the Liga MX final, completing a 4-0 aggregate triumph over Club America in the 2017 Apertura semifinals with a 3-0 win Saturday in the second leg at home.

    The Felinos have conceded one goal or fewer in four straight playoff outings.

    Defender Francisco Meza, however, believes that there’s more accomplish as the pursuit of a third title in the last five domestic campaigns intensifies.

    “We have fulfilled the dream and are full of positive energy for the challenge that awaits,” said the 26-year-old Colombian. “I think that we can give more each day. We haven’t met our objective. It’s another step we’ve made.”

    Next up for Tigres is a meeting with local rival Monterrey, the first time they’ll square off against each other with the silverware at stake.

    Although confident, Meza knows that the job is nowhere near finished.

    “The team is on the rise,” he concluded. “We are very good, with our feet on the floor. We know that we have not reached what we all want, but very sure that we are a big step away.”
