I saw a big challenge in Qatar and that was the main reason behind opting for this offer. I would like to give my best and score as many goals as possible for my new team.

I want to beat England because I want to win every game I play. Not because we went to war in 1982 or because we played against each other in 1998. I can't take on some kind of revenge or change history.
