“Attend, gain confidence. Now we have to adapt to this new Ricardinho, but this selection was never only Ricardinho and now even less. The group wins, not Ricardinho,” signed the emblem of the sport worldwide, who did not save praise for his future rival. Argentina is a team with group spirit, warriors, and quality because otherwise they would not be here. It is a selection of great value. We know a lot about the players and their coach, who was a crack as a player. We know the difficulty, but we must believe in ourselves and improve,” he said.
