Today’s Firenze’s Jorginho has been selected to look forward to a duel with Belgium. “We have to go into the game with respect, number one in the world rankings, but all teams have weaknesses,” said the Champions League-winning Chelsea midfielder.
“I think our thirst for profit can make a big difference,” the turntable immediately added to the team.
The 29-year-old Jorginho, of Brazilian descent, is not afraid of confrontation with Kevin De Bruyne, at least if he plays.
Unsurprisingly, he said of the Red Devil at Man City, who knows him from the Premier League: “We have to limit the space between the lines and stop his deep balls, which can be very dangerous. We must not give him space.”
“De Bruyne is a player who makes the difference. He has above-average football intelligence. It’s very difficult to stop him and he always finds space between the defenders and the goalkeeper. We can’t let him into the match.”
Jorginho was not surprised by the early exits of favorites such as Germany, world champions France and European champions Portugal. “It just shows that there are no more surprises or easy matches,” he said. “Football is not what it used to be, as it was already known how it would end.”
“Everyone understands that we must not make mistakes at this point in the tournament,” the playmaker said. “We shouldn’t think we’ve already done something great. We’re on the right track, but we should keep squeezing our teeth.”
