It will be a great party that will touch everyone and makes us participate. We are looking for good games, good shows and that the winner is in fact the winner under sports truth. That’s what FIFA wants. Also, in the struggle against doping the mechanisms are in motion. All selections will be tested before the championship begins. The medical teams for the out-of-competition control are made up of four/five doctors and a FIFA official and they have the function of collecting urine and blood samples. Then, an individual biological passport will be made, which is a control instrument is built over time. The samples are sent in personal mail to the labora- tory in Lausanne, like what happened in Brazil 2014. It is also in this laboratory that the urine (and blood) samples collected after the game from at least four players will be analyzed. In this process only the agents indicated by FIFA will be involved. Security is guaranteed. In the meanwhile, around here, we can be calm, because the health and Performance Unit of the Portuguese Football Federation has planned and implemented the strategy to support our players. The medical team is huge in qua- lity and in adequate number. We have doctors from various specialties, physiotherapists and dedica- ted nurses, physiologist and other prevention agents. So far, we have already won. Let the game begin!
