Ricardo, how are you feeling today following your injury?
I was out for a few days because of a slight thigh problem. I'm now back training normally and feel fine. After training, it'll be back to competitive action with the game against Nacional. That will help get us back up to speed.
After the Columbia trip, the squad is now preparing at Florida International University. Have you ever played in Miami before?
No, this will be my first time in Miami. It's good to be here for the club, to help raise AS Monaco's profile internationally. There's plenty of expectation around the club. We're meeting lots of people on this tour, lots of fans. Tonight we'll be playing in a nice stadium that's usually used for baseball. The real priority will be the game itself, though. We're here to work and prepare for the coming season. The league is due to kick off again very soon!

This is the club's second game of the Copa EuroAmericana. How are you approaching the clash with Columbian league champions Atlético Nacional?
We played well in Columbia and the team's improving with every day and every training session. Our opponents tonight will be even stronger. They're the champions of Columbia. It's a tougher test. We will need to be on our mettle and properly focused on the job.
