Gonçalo Ramos (Portugal): “I never thought I would start”

Gonçalo Ramos, Portugal striker, author of a hat-trick against Switzerland (6-1) in the round of 16 of the World Cup: “Honestly, I had no particular pressure. cristiano (Ronaldo) is our captain, he did as always: motivate us, encourage us. He offered me his support like everyone else. I haven’t opened all my messages yet but my parents and my best friends called me, I was able to speak with them and the coach also gave me his support.

We had a very good match and we will have to do the same against Morocco (in the quarter-finals, Saturday, 4 p.m.). I never dreamed of an event like tonight, never thought of starting and scoring three goals in my first match (as holder), I just wanted to play. Now we will face Morocco at 100% to try to go to the semis. »
