- It's great to see our fans at the stadium. Switzerland aren't easy opponents, we simply managed to use our goalscoring opportunities when they came our way. My hat trick? Thanks to my teammates for making that happen. Inside the group, we have a positive, warm atmosphere, and we're looking forward to play China in the next match. We have travelled here to win.
