Four wins so far and five more to go all the way – will it be done?
MR: Hopefully! We have a really good chance, we are a very good team and we are in the flow. Now,we look to continue this positive trend and we look forward to the game on Sunday, against Sweden.
Talking about Sweden – do you expect to see a different team compared to what could be witnessed yesterday (in the match against Portugal ed.)?
MR: For sure! We know the Swedish players are a lot better than what they showed against Portugal. They have to win against us and I know that a real tough game is coming up.
You are one of the players that receives significant media attention here at EURO 2020. How do you keep your focus?
MR: Just deal with it. Be as honest as you can when you speak with the media and say it as it is. Afterwards you go up and sleep for a while and then you have to prepare for the next game already. That’s the way it is. By now, I have played enough games in the Bundesliga where I get a great deal of media attention as well. It’s something you’ll get use to – I am comfortable with it, now.
