Today, the “Chinese” disputes a new world cup: “It is an area where it is Norway in the lead and against the Netherlands and Macedonia you can win both if everything is done right and lose both if we don’t do everything right. There is no rival in our group that is lazy and let it be known that he will lose all the games. By winning a game (Macedonia or the Netherlands) you can be eliminated”, explained the captain.
About the debut, Simonet said: “Obviously we want to go round. We have to think about how to beat the Netherlands, which is our first World Cup match. Don’t go any further. You have to come up with everything and leave everything against them, who are at a very good level, with their star player Luc Stein at the helm”.
