Which country are you representing and why?
Portugal, because I’m from Portugal, I love football and I play it. We also have the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, who played in the best team in the world. We’ve recently signed Diogo Dalot, who I think will be one of the best right-backs in the world.
