“In half-time, Cristiano had fantastic words for us. He gave us a lot of confidence and said ‘listen people, I’m sure we will win, so stay together and fight for it.’

“Yes, he had fantastic words for each player in each moment of the game … I’m really really happy to be part of this group and be champion” Soares said.
