Vitinha’s statements after Portugal-North Macedonia (2-0), victory which guarantees the presence of the national team at the 2022 World Cup
National team debut: “The national team is the goal of all the players and it was my goal to be here too. Luckily I managed to do it. To be able to make my debut with a guaranteed World Cup qualification and, to top it off, at this stadium was perfect.”
Opportunity: “Misery [lesão de Rúben Neves] Some people make others happy, I was happy for me and unhappy for him, I had the opportunity to talk to him and wish him good luck, luckily I was able to come and I am very happy.”
Do you have a place in the World Cup? “Nobody is guaranteed a place here. I know it’s the result of my work to have arrived here, but it also depends on the continuation of my work to come here and that’s what I will do”.
Fernando Santos lyrics: “You just told me to come in and enjoy.”
Safer game than with Turkey: “Yes, maybe. Turkey and Macedonia are different teams. Macedonia are a very organized team, but luckily we managed to score a goal with their mistake and that gave us a bit of comfort in the game. Then the second came naturally.”
