We understand what the coach wants… It was the last friendly before the first official match, I believe we played well in each one of them and now we got to keep working so that we can be ready for the first official clash", said Gilberto, to BTV.
"This team was one of the strongest we played in the preseason, a team that will be in the Champions League. It was a good match, very important for what’s coming", ended Gilberto.
