After the match, at the exit of the stadium, Bruno Fernandes was questioned about his partner’s situation and admitted that it must not have been easy for him.

“We are very happy for Gonçalo, even more so because he has helped us. But everyone was important, from Danilo, who has been a great help in supporting the team, to the names that have not yet entered”, he concluded.
