Thoughts From Both Camps

“Regarding Ronaldo, he is motivated, and what I can see is that he is taking the competition very seriously and is totally dedicated to training and thinking about the next game against Mexico.

As for my partnership with Ronaldo, it’s a dream. Since I began playing on big stages I always imagined playing alongside him or playing on the same level as him. I’m happy to play with my captain.”

– Andre Silva, Portugal.

“It goes without saying that Ronaldo’s a great player. But we’re a great side too, and I’m sure we can stop him. It doesn’t matter what your name is or the league you play in: we’re all in this together and we’re all fighting for the same objective. That’s very important.”

– Raul Jimenez, Mexico.
