“It hasn’t changed [the feeling]. Another team came to take this cup from us. That of course stays. We won the World Cup, frankly, it was bad for good,” he said. “Now we didn’t come here to participate in Euro (2020) and just be a great team that participated. We want, we want to win that, we want to go for the victory, we have to be motivated. We must want more than the others.”
