What the coaches say
Fernando Santos, Portugal coach: “The game plan is the same [without Ronaldo], but the team dynamics will of course be different. This team has shown in the past that it has the ability to respond collectively and I have full confidence in every player. Over the last few years Portugal has shown that they can fight for the championship in every competition. Right now we enter every game with the goal of winning, whether it's to the word champion or against another team, and that never happens. will not change. ”
Swedish coach Jan Andersson : “I think we are a little more valuable than Croatia's 2-1 loss. But you can't just look at the result blindly. Losing is painful as hell; other than that, lots of nice things we can take with us. I am sure we will see many good things when we watch the match back. ”
