Speak up, Fernando Santos!

"That means that there is some accumulated fatigue in the players. You have to manage the times well, there are players with more pace and less pace, normal, there are some with more overload, Cancelo is the one with more minutes, we will try to manage to be all at the same level.

We will face teams from three different continents. Regarding Ghana, African soccer has improved a lot in tactical and organizational terms. Nigeria will have something to do with Ghana, very fast, talented players who will try to exploit the depth and with many individual plays. Nigeria is more 4x4x2, Ghana is more 4x3x3 or 3x5x2, [...] so I think it was a good choice for this preparation game.

I think they turned the key as soon as they left their clubs and went into national team mode and into World Cup mode, with great motivation and total focus on the national team."
