With two good results we can make a good run to plagiarize, and with the poor it can complicate the situation. with Portugal is one of the most important for us, “Kolarov told reporters in Stara Pazova.
Aleksandar Kolarov said that it was a negative thing that the national team did not play in the continental championship since 2000.

That’s part of our job, “Kolarov said.
In his words, much can depend on the duo with Germany who will play five days before Portugal.

A very important game on the psychological level, “said Kolarov.

Then the match with Portugal will be led by Cristiano Ronaldo.
“There is no big wisdom here, you’ve seen against Athletic that he made up the first two goals. He and Messi are players who are born once in 100 years.” “There are no special tactics, but only to play collectively, as little space as possible Such players are most difficult to keep, “Kolarov said.
