"I have no illusions. We perform this way in the last nine games. I don't think that this can change in the last 24 hours. We can give more passion, more strength because the last 1 year and a half was destructive. We should give our best to win because it's not only the three points but our place in the FIFA ranking. Ι play professionaly for 12-13 years and to any group I played, we were not friends with everybody. It's a lie that in the Mundial we were friends and now we are not. I've experienced worse moments with the Greek national team . I have lived the time before EURO 2008 where things that happened were not published because we were winning. It was good for us, for the FA, for the fans. It's like 2007 when I came for the first time. At no teams all players are friends.
Before the World Cup 2014 and after the match PAOK- Olympiacos there were many problems that we put aside for the sake of the national team. After the defeats, it was said that we have bad relationships with each other. Some are true, some are not. We will be the same players for the next qualifiers. This can only change if we put the team before ourselves and understand that we must enter the pitch and win.
Holebas never threw down the shirt. I f we had won, nobody would have written this. We never said that we are 25 friends. It's impossible. Some don't want me. Some don't want others. It's reasonable to be nervous after a defeat. There's nothing personal between Holebas and the fans. That's the way he reacts. I don't want to justify him. I don't intend to. He left without applauding the fans. It's the last thing that could mess things up. I take the responsibility as a captain. Better blame us and leave the new faces out of this. The pitch is the mirror. You can't lose to Faroe Island twice. No mentality is to blame. It's a shame without intending to downplay them. Deeds will be proven in the pitch" said Torosidis in the Press Conference.
