After a disappointing league campaign, Europa have chance to retain the Gibtelecom Rock Cup when they take on Mons Calpe today – we spoke to captain Javi Munoz about the game.
On his feelings about today’s game – Munoz replied, “We are expecting a hard and even match which we will have to be very focused and attentive to all the circumstances of the game.”
We asked if there’s added pressure on Europa to win today after losing the league to Lincoln. Munoz replied, “We are humble players and we live with this pressure every day – it’s nothing new. We are very excited to win the cup.”
Europa have come out victorious on all three occasions this season against Mons Calpe. We asked if he believes his side can continue their good run of form and Munoz replied, “Each match is a different story. We will try to win and fight to get the Cup.”
With players with the experience of Alberto Merino, Alex Quillo and himself, we asked if he sees Europa as favourites going into the Cup final – “We do not see ourselves as favourites and in football we have to talk on the pitch. Tomorrow we play against a good team, our hope is to win and keep growing with Europa FC.”
