The strength of the Portuguese national team football lies in the respect for its flag, and to the knowledge of the opponents, said the Portuguese team midfielder Adrien Silva.

On Wednesday in Kazan in the semifinals of the confederations Cup, the national team of Portugal will play against Chile.

«We have a strong team, although we don’t always play at the highest level. But now we aim only to win. Our secret is that we respect the colors of our flag, nation, country. I’m sure all our players respect their opponents. Every match is a new challenge for us, but we know what to expect from opponents, and this has always been our strength. This line we will adhere to in the future,» said Silva at press conference.
