Ronaldo, possible Belgium – Portugal and Courtois: Martinez spoke to DH: “I am no longer in contact with the Devils”

Roberto Martinez, congratulations on your great performance for Portugal!

“Yes, thank you, we have a good group. I’m taking advantage of the experience I brought with me from Belgium. Remember we also won our 10 qualifying matches. It’s up to us to continue our momentum. What I find Our draw ? (Editor’s note: Portugal faces Turkey and the Czech Republic in a playoff.) I’m especially happy that we have a few more days before we play our first match. Like Belgium.”
