Then we defended the score, because it was important to give an answer like victory after what happened. I really liked the behavior And the behavior and the spirit of the players who played, came and stayed on the bench. This is the spirit of Corinthians, so we got the three points because of the spirit of this club, which is very strong in difficult moments,”
