Despite recognizing that he has an important role, the number 10 guaranteed that this pressure will be diluted across the entire squad. “But what we always talk about in the locker room is that here we will share responsibilities.

I know that the eyes of the whole world will be on me there with that t-shirt, so I’m prepared to continue doing things well to respond to what they expect.”said.
