Since he's an American, Edgar Castillo was asked about what he thought about Alexi Lalas' comments of the apparent hate that flows from north to south.
Castillo told Reforma that the hate for Mexico is strong.
"What can I tell you about what he said? Over there, all the Americans hate Mexico."
(Again, Reforma is a subscription site so can't link to the story but here's the full quote in Spanish: alla, todos los americanos odian a Mexico.)
Originally, Lalas' comments were taken for more than what they were; in Mexico the media has blown it up as Lalas hating Mexico the country and its people. That's what the media is playing the build-up to this game apparently, how there is a lot of hate from the US towards Mexico. Castillo certainly hasn't done anything to dissuade from that.
