INFOS:

On November 19, 1981, in the hexagonal at Honduras, El Salvador beat Haiti by 1–0 with a penalty kick taken by Norberto Huezo. Honduras tied with Mexico, meaning the national team scored more points than Mexico and qualified for the second time for a World Cup, alongside Honduras. In the hexagonal games, La Selecta won 1–0 over Mexico—with a memorable goal from Ever Hernandez on November 6—and Haiti. The national team tied 0–0 against Cuba and Honduras and lost to Canada 0–1. The national team was under the direction of Mauricio "Pipo" Rodríguez.

In 1982 El Salvador took a 20-man squad (two players short of the normal 22, for controversial and economical problems), coached by Mauricio "Pipo" Rodríguez, to Spain. The team's experience was an unhappy one. In their first match on June 15 in Elche, they were defeated 10–1 by Hungary, a scoreline that stands as a World Cup record to this day. One comfort was that Luis Baltazar Ramírez Zapata scored the country's first World Cup goal during the game, albeit at a point when the Salvadorans were already down 5–0.
El Salvador managed to regain some pride in their subsequent games: displaying much-improved levels of organisation and commitment, they lost 1–0 to Belgium on June 19 in Elche and 2–0 to the then-reigning world champions, Argentina, in Alicante on June 23.

El Salvador, within many surprises among the Spanish press for the qualification to the 1982 FIFA World Cup, had a terrible experience in personal terms. First of all, El Salvador took 20 players to the World Cup, leaving behind Gilberto Quinteros and Miguel González. According to Luis Guevara Mora, goalkeeper of the team by that time, the Salvadoran Football Association decided to take a few friends of the association in exchange for such players that had participated in the qualification process. By the way, those friends never took part with the team in the notorious World Cup but did take a trip around Europe. Some fellow players tried to gather in some money to help pay for the flight. El Salvador took 3 days to arrive to Spain and was the last team to do so. Adidas sent four white and three blue uniforms for each player. But mysteriously only three white and one blue remained. The remaining uniforms were taken away by the association. They decided to play with the white uniform and keep the blue as a keepsake. Someone had stolen the balls that the team would train with. The day prior to the match against Hungary, the Hungarians had the 25 balls the organization had given them and trained with them. El Salvador had never seen Hungary play. The only knowledge that they had about the team was a lone video that they had bought. When Zapata scored against Hungary, some Salvadorans cried out to Zapata not to celebrate the goal effusively because it might make the Hungarians mad. The fourth goal of Hungary was the fault of the deafness of Francisco Jovel. Jovel had received a heavy blow on the cheek and almost could not hear. So when Guevara Mora cried off to stop a ball, the defender did not hear him. The rejection was defective, Mora had left the goal and the Hungarian player only had to push it inside. After the match against Hungary, the Salvadoran squad had a tense meeting with the coaching staff. The continuing matches against Belgium and Argentina were managed by players Jovel, Huezo and Fagoaga.

Even though they had a bad experience in the World Cup, El Salvador had some relieved moments. Jorge "Magico: Gonzalez was considered by the national and international press as the best player. "Magico" Gonzalez stayed in Spain were he played for Cádiz CF, Real Valladolid and Barcelona. Ricardo Guevara Mora, the goalkeeper, was the youngest player to play at the 1982 FIFA World Cup with 20 years of age.

In my opinion, Ramon Fagoaga should be in defender area. He's a central defender, sometimes playing just in front Jovel and Rodriguez in a three consolidated defense.

Mauricio Alfaro is a central midfielder and should be in this section while Ramirez zapata is, first of all, a forward, used sometimes as an offensive midfielder.

And one more, thank you for your excellent work on the 1982 world cup squads.
