I’ll admit it immediately, it was so good to beat Portugal last night. The crowd was fantastic last night, and Brede Hangeland has to be one of the best center backs in the world. John Carew was on fire until he had to go off. A combination that will give us some results. After the game I went out with the team and some friends, after all it is my birthday today. Now I’m on my way back to Manchester. I’m really happy about the good start to the Euro qualification.
