“I will continue to work to rise from one scale to another. I was in the B team, I was in the A team … it is to continue with the good performances and then – of course – the goal is to win the title. In the national team, I think ahead. “
“It is necessary for each thing to appear in its own time, step by step. I will continue to keep my feet down and do the work every day. Only then will I be able one day to reach high level football”, he said. concluded.
