I've been part of a lot of important games, but today was the first time I cried at the end of football match. There are no words to describe how I felt. We knew it was going to be a tough group but we believed we could qualify from it. Now we should to savour this victory and then turn our thoughts to Spain.

This was a great tournament for us to be part of, and we've loved being here in Rio de Janeiro. Nowadays in beach soccer, there is less of a gap between the teams, so to compete in a competition of this quality we have to play and test ourselves more against other national teams. I say that because we're a long way from other countries, but we're looking for ways to achieve those goals.

I'm thrilled to have scored two goals and for those to have made a difference to my team. It was a complicated game as we started nervously. Luckily we composed ourselves in time and finished up playing well. To be among the top eight sides at our first World Cup is a great result.

Today's game was very difficult. Our opponents ran a lot and performed better physically, while we committed too many mistakes that gave them goal-scoring opportunities. This is my second World Cup and I hope to continue playing for another six years or so.
