Got Sleep

"We slept a little bit until we conceded the first goal. After that we reacted well and we started to find our way of playing and scored the first goal," he told Canal+.

"That's what we did continuously, until we could score the second goal. Then we finished the show at the end of the game with the third goal."

Still have to work hard
