Caption translation: "Today, when our adventure finally starts we will be much more than 10 million. We will be passion, emotion, belief, determination, perseverance. We will be the spirit of victory. We will be hope. All together, holding hands and with hearts united, with one voice. And paraphrasing Pope Francis, no one wins by themselves, not on the field and not in life. Go Portugal!"
