“So this goal, and every goal that I score from now on, is going to be for her.”
“They took a long time to check it,”he said.
“On the pitch, I felt it was a penalty, but they took their time.It's never easy when you have to wait, but, fortunately, it was a good pen. The goalkeeper went to the other side... Bruno [had] better watch out now! [Smiles]
