Looking at these we will see how much we performed them. There is not a very wide range of things that should be improved or developed. Because time is short, things should be specific and they will be very basic. Let’s see how we will be, who will be healthy, who will be present. All friendlies are in this context and are many and continuous.’

Our mind is on training and what needs to be done on a daily basis, but we are constantly looking at what is happening in general with the Nationals, with the calls, who is coming, who is not. It’s a continuous process that doesn’t stop until the games come. Every day we see things, shape, include more. It’s an ongoing process.”
