Caio Lucas was decisive in Benfica's second win at the ICC 2019. The red athlete was one of the eagles' players that came on during the second half and, at 90'+3', scored the goal that secured the triumph over Fiorentina (1-2).
How important was this goal to you and the team?
The goal was very important because it was the first one. I'm very happy to be able to help the team, and now it's about working as hard as possible to get the best out of the next match.
Do these kind of matches of the ICC, against these teams, help the athletes prepare for the season, specifically for the Champions League?
It's a preseason in which we have these [International Champions Cup], we're very happy to be able to participate in this competition and it's an additional help for us to work as hard as we can, play well so we can get to the Champions League in a good form, but also the National League.
