Playing two matches in the Hungarian environment in the Puskás Arena full of Hungarian fans was indescribable! As the bus was coming to the Puskás Arena in the middle of the line of fans cheered, then as I looked up at the stands, the cold feeling still shook as I spoke about it. When the Anthem sounded, it was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. I can add that what we had in Munich will accompany us for the rest of our lives. ”
