Alexandre Soares, Brazil coach
For me, Russia were one of the favourites at this tournament. We knew that it would be tough since they absolutely had to win to make sure of qualifying. They are a very strong team, maybe the most solid in the competition, but we never let up for one moment. As of now, we have three finals to play - and to win.
