Now I am in Norway together with the rest of the national team starting preparations for the qualifier against Cyprus. It is an extremely important game, and at the same time as we are depending on that Denmark gives away points to both Cyprus and Portugal. It is quite possible since both Cyprus and by far Portugal is better than Denmark. Then it only remains for us to do our job and this should go just fine.

Our game against Manchester City is not much to write home about. We were good for about 55 minutes and then we burst like a balloon, but there are many who are going to do that against City. The have world class players in all positions and spend hundreds of millions on players so it would be an incredible achievement if we where to grab points from them.
