Think about the present

Roberto Martinez told the Goal website that he does not think or pay attention to rumors linking him to the Barcelona bench, stating that he is happy with Belgium at the moment:

"Being totally honest, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about my future. My career is the example that I don't make plans to be where I am now, I just go from project to project. It's something you learn, to be committed to the day to day. In soccer, if you start thinking, your performance drops and you achieve things below what you can achieve. In my case, I'm very happy with what I'm doing and I'm just trying to get the next steps to take. In the end, if I have to make a decision where I have to take a door, I will try to make the best decision for everyone," he said.

11:27 AM4 months ago


France coach Deschamps told a press conference yesterday that his team will approach this game with seriousness and responsibility because they will be facing one of the best European teams at the moment.

"We will give everything to beat Belgium and we will see who will be our opponent (in a hypothetical final). We are really looking forward to this game and we know that we are up against one of the best opponents in Europe. It will be a high-level match," he said.

He is confident

Regarding the confidence that the striker Romelu Lukaku generates to the technical director Roberto Martinez, this was limited to say:

'It's like asking a father if his son is the best pupil in the class. We are biased. We like Romelu Lukaku in good times and bad (...). You are asking the wrong person, I will always give a positive answer,", he said.
