"The final in Yokohama (Japan) was at eight o'clock in the evening, the same time as in Paris in '98. After lunch, everyone went to nap, and I thought, 'Fuck, I do not want to sleep "I was looking around to see if I could find people to talk to and I found Dida, I said 'no, you stay with me, please.' Do not sleep at all for fear that the same thing would happen again."
