Machado was the key to jump off the bench: “We had a tough time in the beginning, but we know the role every player plays. It was my turn to be disgusting coming off the bench and fortunately I know how to take advantage of that with confidence and take the shots that the coach tells me to do. We knew how to make him defend hard and then The match has passed into our hands.”
