“We said that our dream was to reach the quarter-finals. It is done and we all know that the appetite comes with the eating’. So we want to go further.
“We are going to face a team that I know well as it is 80% or 90% of the group that I put in place. We won’t see much change to the squad that we built.
“It is going to be a very tricky game, they have a huge athletic power and we will have to answer tactically.
“We know their potential and it is going to be David vs Goliath, but we know that sometime the small David caused some problems to the big Goliath - so we are preparing accordingly.”For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
