Felipe: “We missed the goals by details”

Central defender believes FC Porto will correct the tie against Leixões in the next matches of the League Cup


With Herrera and Marcano out of the match, Felipe wore up the captain's armband in a match that ended with a tie against Leixões (0-0), for matchday two of Group D of the League Cup. The Brazilian central defender believes the changes in the team made by the coach had no influence on the result, claiming it was only a matter of “details” that the goals didn’t appear.

What lacked for the victory
“We put intensity in the game, that wasn’t lacking. Leixões is a very good team and we have to praise that. But the strong teams must be prepared at all times, and today that wasn’t possible. I think we missed the goals by details today.”

Team changes
“All players in the squad are prepared to play. We are a group, there are no starters and substitutes. Those at FC Porto have the ability to play. It’s a choice of the coach, the coach knows exactly what he is doing. These are things that happen, and now we have to correct this mistake.”

The situation in the League Cup
“The competition is still at the beginning, nothing is over. We go in to win every match, especially because we play in a very big club like FC Porto is.”
