We at least can help out a little, and give them a reason to smile.
The manager's been brilliant. He was down yesterday...he's been through a lot.
His absence affects me. We have a great partnership, and we were really hoping to play together in this tournament. We'll miss him a lot but it gives someone else in the team a chance to show what they can do.
The pressure will really be on them because if we get an early goal the crowd will be on their backs.
This is a great stage. I know the timing doesn't help Portsmouth, but I have to represent my country - I am the captain.
I come from a country that lives for football and I owe the people a debt of gratitude.
