The striker admitted that Corinthians had a bad game in the 2-0 defeat in Goiânia and praised the team’s behavior in the second confrontation.
– We worked hard, we knew it would be very important and difficult to leave with 2-0 (behind). People came together. We were very competitive. In the first game, we came in a little lower.
