Deco: "Like I just said, the fact that I havent' played a lot.

02:50 reporter: Is it an advantage for the Portugal national team to have Deco...?

03:24- reporter: "So Deco, Ricardo arrived before the time limit 7 pm. Then the rest arrived. Miguel and Miguel Veloso arrived together in Miguel's car. They also went directly to the garage.
04:04 Joao Moutinho stopped to speak to the journalists:
"I think we have a good group. We're going to try to strengthen it even more."

Reporter: Behind you there's a car full of supporters of the Portugal team. Do you think they have a right to ask you to win the title?
Joao Moutinho: "Not demand the title but demand that we play our best in every game and that's what we'll do."
04:38 Nuno Gomes: "With the coming of new players, done gradually-- I think that in this moment the majority are completely adapted. Therefore, there's no problem about that.

04:50 Reporter: What do you expect of the Portugal team in the Euro 2008?
Nuno Gomes: "The objectives are big, obviously because we have a big team. First of all, we'll focus on our first objective: to go through the group stage."

reporter: Do you think you'll be in the starting lineup?
Nuno Gomes: "I hope so. I will work for that. That depends on the manager's decision. The coach is sovereign and we need to accept his decisions."
