QUOTES

Fernando Santos 

(Covid-19) “First, I will manage like anybody else, with care. I am one of those people who respect all the rules. Unfortunately, we will always have it as a problem. The virus is here, we cannot do anything against it. “I have doubts that the contagion of Ronaldo was with the Seleção. The players were always confined, they took off their mask for a photo at an outdoor dinner. In the first 2 cases (Lopes, Fonte), I have no doubts, the virus came from outside.”

“The result was great, 3-0, excellent. In terms of the performance, we had good things and others not so good.”

William

“We played well in the face of a difficult opponent. We scored 3 goals and that made things easy and helped fulfill our objective of winning.”

Jota

(Best Moment?) “I think so. It is the best moment of my career. I took a big step forward in this my second national team match I continued my good play. And the important thing is to do my best and just keep growing.”

(Any pressure in replacing CR7 in the XI?) “No. The mister chooses the best XI for each match and I gave my best. We are professionals and we go on the pitch to give the best knowing that winning is the only option.”

“It was an excellent night, one of the my best performances during the second time I play for my country. It is of great pride for me, as well as for the result we have achieved.”
