Right now we’ve been doing it for a few matches, swapping the good stuff with the less technical stuff from a technical point of view. We’re nearing the end of the tournament, There is no recovery time. Fouls must be reduced, points weigh more. The score must be obtained one way or another. Players cannot substitute others.

They are stronger than us. We are there, and we have to work to get to the top four.”
