Jordan Perez hopes to be the Rock of Gibraltar, not Brazil.
What he said:
“Anything below seven goals and I’ll be satisfied as then we can say that we’re better than Brazil (routed 7-1 by Germany at the World Cup).”
Amateurs Gibraltar take on world champions Germany in a mismatched battle in the European Cup qualifiers on Friday the 14th. Their goalkeeper Jordan Perez will be happy if they fare better than Brazil who lost 1-7 to the Germans in the World Cup semi-final this summer.
What he really meant:
“At least, our defence will be better (than Brazil’s) with me in citadel. We can’t just be torn to shreds even though our current record stands at 0-17.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Well, at least, our morale is higher than Brazil’s and we have no great expectations neither from our fans nor our press.”
