Santos ready for the final
Rafael, Santos' goalkeeper, admits he already considered the possibility that the game might be decided on the penalties. “first we need to focus on our main objective of the game: to win. Now, if we have to go to the penalties, I already know where they all shoot,” he said.
The same determination was with the field players. As Arouca said: “it is not only Rafael, all of us are ready for the penalties, and if needed, I’ll shoot.”
The midfielder just came back from a bad injury and says he is ready to play. “ I stayed one week in treatment and Thursday I came back to the pitch. Physically I’m well, I didn’t feel any discomfort,” he said.
