“I feel really good; training has been really good, it’s good to know everybody. There is a very high quality here and we are working hard in training, listening to what the coach has to say and looking forward to the game.

“In this game you have to prepare very well, you prepare based on how you want to play and we are already excited and looking forward to play against the team [Brazil] on Friday.”
