The national team will face off against the Republic of Ireland (this Wednesday 19:45) and Azerbaijan (September 7). Gonzalo Goodes said the main innovation in Fernando Santos’ call-up was the inclusion of Portuguese-Brazilian FC Porto midfielder Ottavio and that he was accepted like all other newcomers.
“He was received in the same way that all first-time players were received. He was well-received to integrate quickly and feel at home. The way he received Otavio was just like everyone else’s. He was well received and considered by everyone here,” said the Valencia striker. Prior to Euro2020, Gudas tested the Kovid-19 positive. Now he says the importance of vaccination and that the tournament is over, because the team is only thinking about qualifying for Mundial ‘2022.
“It was difficult not only for us, but for everyone, to deal with the virus. Now, with vaccines, it has become much easier and we feel safe for that. We arrived today. [esta segunda-feira] We have not yet had to analyze the representative in Ireland. We know it hasn’t scored yet, but it’s a team with its strengths, but we need to look at the weaknesses so we can take advantage of them. Euro is over and now we are focused on qualifying. We want to win, play well and score a lot of goals. We will do our best to get the best result, ”he said.
The former Benfica player spoke about his characteristics and how he can use them to help the national team: “I’m a fast player, but I’m not the only one on the national team here. I’m trying to harness and harness my power, just like the game speeds up many times. “
This Wednesday, against the Republic of Ireland, Portugal play at home, at the Algarve Stadium, but at 7 they have a long trip to Azerbaijan, although Guedes is devalued.
“It has to adapt to us and we are used to doing it. It is important to give our best, relax and eat well, so we are mentally ready to give our best,” said the striker, who works in Spanish.
Cristiano Ronaldo is going to change clubs and nations, but the captain of the national team is also going to surpass the record of goals scored by a national team, says Gonzalo Goodes on inspiration:
“Cristiano is a player who inspires a lot of people, and sharing the dressing room with him is a great privilege. We are going to help him break the record. His presence alone is always a reason to be inspired!”
