Probablemente a la mayoría de la afición que vive en Monterrey y en el norte del país jamás le pregunten: ¿por qué a Tigres? Pues imagínense, uno que vive en la caótica capital del País, es muy repetitiva la pregunta de porque a este equipo. Vaya mi respuesta normalmente era con la historia de porque nació mi amor a Tigres, pero esta se volvió cansada de contar y ahora mi respuesta es, porque es mi religión y en lo que creo, así nací y así moriré.

Now this is the type of player I really like. "El Matador", namely Edinson Cavani. Cavani finished 4th in the last World Cup with Uruguay where his role was less important than that of Forlan and Suarez since he was mostly used as a winger.
