champions and have earned their stripes,” said the 31-year-old.

They will watch the videos and come to us with more information than in the
previous games. We will be ready to fight and defend our territory as we will
be playing at home.”
The defender added: “The mood in the camp is very high. We
are working hard to achieve things this season. I am just happy for the team as
a whole, we are doing so well and we plan to keep it up,” he said.
