national team defender Pires believes the Egyptian team has a lot of technical abilities which caused his team many problems.

Rolando was glad with his nation’s 2-1 win over the Egyptian National team after coming back from one goal down and reflected on his presence with Portugal.

“They were an opponent with a lot of technical quality and caused us a lot of problems but we managed to win,” Rolando said.

The defender had a goal cancelled for offside in the first half after heading Andre Silva’s header into the net, but that didn’t stop the Selecao from winning the match,

“I do not care about the context, but I represent the team, we are here representing the team and to enjoy. Over time I learned to enjoy the moments and then to wait.”

Portugal are set to face Holland on the 26th of March at Stade de Geneve in Switzerland in preparation for the 2018 World Cup at Russia, while face Greece on the 27th.
