“I always say there is no merit or revenge in football, it is a new game and a new way to play it. All three games were very similar. We are trying to play a certain way and they, who are the best team in the world because they dominate all the records and that is why they win. It’s not luck, they are very good, but we also compete well and that’s why we win.”He added.
