“Against Anderlecht, it’s a normal game but we are poised to go past them and we are prepared and already arrived Belgium.”I hope to give my best in every game because this is just a starting point for my career in Europe and I see bigger things. I give my best and our target is nothing short of a point in Belgium.”
