"I’ve never taken a sure place for granted, not even if it’s in the reserves. In no way do I feel like a first-choice player. But I never try to settle for what I have. Obviously, every footballer would like to play and if I get the chance I’ll kill myself on the pitch because I fought all these years to be at the World Cup. The simple fact of being in the squad makes me happy and very motivated. This is a new dream and I’m trying to enjoy it to the maximum."
