ANDdebut for the national team: It was a very beautiful moment that will stay in my memory for the rest of my life. I’m very happy and I just hope I have more opportunities to receive this kind of affection that I’m receiving today.
Anxiety before the debut? The previous moment, of anxiety, when I’m in the dressing room, when all my colleagues gave me a lot of confidence and told me to be calm. That’s what I tried to do from the first minute and I’m really happy.
Integration with colleagues in midfield: We did very well, we tried to stifle the opponent, not let them counterattack, because in midfield it is very important to keep possession of the ball. I just hope to get better day after day. The more time you spend with them, the trend is to improve.
Portugal instead of Brazil: Always aware that it was the right one. Together with my family, it was the decision I thought I could be happiest with. Today was proof of that; I am very happy.
