"He is a young player with a big future and is still only 21. He is in the Brazil squad but not a typical Brazilian player - he doesn't have the silky skills of the top Brazilian players but he has a lot of other great attributes. Sandro was immense in midfield for a young lad with limited experience. The centre-halves defended for their lives and the keeper [Heurelho Gomes] did well, taking pressure off by claiming crosses when he had to.
"They narrowed up the midfield, we wanted to play with width and we got outnumbered in the middle of the park and they kept the ball well

"I thought Sandro was immense in midfield," said Harry after another glory, glory night at the Lane.
"He's powerful, strong, aggressive. He’s got the ability to run and work for 90 minutes and I felt he turned in a great performance for us.
"He’s in the Brazilian squad and a young player with a big future."
“Sandro’s been great for us and was unbelievable for us again on Wednesday. In our previous game against Wolves he also played great, as he did in Milan and at Sunderland recently.
“He’s learning quickly, which is good for him. He’s still young, only 21 years old, and he can do so much more for us, believe you me.
“The whole defence worked so hard for the victory – they were unbelievable. Every one of the back four and Sandro in front of them.
