“They (England) are great on established parts, they’re tall, they have players who can choose fantastic absolutely free kicks. We have to be incredibly robust, but our attack has what it can take and can make it tricky for them.”

“In our aspect there are adjustments, there’s a new generation of gamers ready to compete participating in in the finest clubs in Europe. It is a fantastic combination of experience and younger gamers, we’re receiving stronger step by stage.” ― Reuters
