Nunes: "We are ready for Borussia Dortmund"
The midfielder insists Sporting CP are prepared for Champions League Matchday 2
Matheus Nunes previewed the match against Borussia Dortmund in the group stage of the Champions League, explaining that he is certain that Sporting CP are prepared to win.
"We are ready. We have prepared as much as we prepared for the game with CS Marítimo. We know the quality that BVB Dortmund have, but we also know about our strengths, and that's why we'll face the game looking them eye-to-eye,” the midfielder began by saying, mentioning that the heavy defeat against AFC Ajax is already behind them.
“That game is over. We cannot doubt in our work. We are going to do things in the same way. We believe in our work and there is no reason to doubt what we have been doing,” he stressed.
Praising his teammates and midfielders and talking about the qualities of Daniel Bragança, Manuel Ugarte and Bruno Tabata, he said that “the important thing is the team," whoever plays.
“If we are here, it is because we have the quality. The important thing here is not the individuals. Any one of them can do a good job; the important thing is the team."
At a time when much has been said about the interest of the Portuguese and Brazilian national teams in calling him up, Nunes answered that "I've already made a decision. I spoke with both coaches and after thinking a lot I came to the conclusion that it was better to play for Portugal. I think I'll be happier here and my family said the same. I've made this decision and I'm very happy."
