I am happy to be here again, because I am a regular guest here during the Polish league season. I feel that this hall is one of the nicest venues in Poland, so I hope it will be good for us and for our guests. We have nothing but high respect for our rivals: South Korea are a very strong team, Peru played a good tournament at home. We played against Argentina last weekend and won, but we are aware they will come here very determined. Our team is full of young players, as you will see, but they will do everything to please the fans and show our best in front Polish crowd."
