Rui Patrício

“We are very proud to be playing on home soil, and all the more because it’s a final. Tomorrow will without doubt be a great game. It’s perfect to be playing it here.”


“For us as athletes we want to train and face the best athletes in the world. That’s what we work towards every day. We continuously strive to be the best. It’s great to have the opportunity to work with Cristiano. On and off the pitch he’s a fantastic professional. We’re very proud of him and we learn a lot from him.”


“They are a very strong team, like all teams in these finals. Their players are technically and tactically well-evolved. But playing the final at home, we’ll do our best to win. It will, without doubt, be a fantastic match.”


“We are all playing to win here, not just Cristiano. We all want to win this trophy. He works every day for that, just like we all do. It’s great that he scored a hat-trick against Switzerland, but he doesn’t have any additional responsibilities on his shoulders. He does what we all do, which is to fight for this trophy.”


“We are in another final, just like 2016. Obviously we want to win, just like we did in France. We want to rack up titles. Tomorrow we have another opportunity, but the Netherlands have excellent players.”


“You have to be prepared for all eventualities, because every game tells its own story. So we have prepared in the same way as for all other games. But also for penalties.”
