    You call this a ‘friendly’ match? Both teams fought ferociously for the ball, throwing in their bodies without regard for personal safety. I almost shed tears for their patriotism. Keep it up, boys!

    And for Abiceleste; now you know the taste of the defeats you’ve inflicted on us in the past. The table has been turned against you.
