LA BALLE – “My future is not an issue, I am focused” (Selection)

Fernando Santos said he was thinking of nothing but the game against Turkey in Qatar’s World Cup qualifier on Thursday at the Estádio do Dragão.

After the defeat against Serbia, which excluded Portugal from direct qualification, Fernando Santos took the blame and an exit, in an interview a few days later, if the Selection does not go to Qatar, but he now says that he doesn’t think about it.

Does a possible exit bother you? ” This is not a problem. I mean, it’s not a problem for me. I’m focused on tomorrow’s final. We know what we have to do – we are here on our own responsibility, we took over right after the game against Serbia. But that’s in the past, we want to be at Worlds, we’re fully focused on that, everything else has to be let go.

JDid the game against Serbia make you think differently when choosing the team? “No. We had no merit, I know it starts with the coach, we didn’t play well and we didn’t achieve any goals. We couldn’t. beaten a lot at Euro-2016 and in the League of Nations (2019), tomorrow we want to give joy to the Portuguese.”
