“TWe have to do everything to reach the final, and for that we have to win today”, declared the President of the Republic, in the ‘flash interview’ of RTP at Estádio 974, in Doha.
Refusing to talk about human rights and a possible diplomatic incident with Qatar, as he was “concentrated on the national team”, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa said he saw the coach, Fernando Santos, “in great shape”.
He was told that “the mood is great” in the locker room, something he confirmed with the president of the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF), Fernando Gomes, and asked “everything to work towards victory”.
Regarding the goalless draw between Uruguay and South Korea, he considered it “favourable”.
The national team plays today the first round of the group stage, facing Ghana from 19:00 local time (16:00 in Lisbon), at Estádio 974, in Doha.
