"Today, we woke up with a new challenge.
"As life has taught us a different lesson.
"Our warriors became heroes.
"And their lives have been eternized.
"In a battle that made the world stop.
"Today, our match has no final whistle.
"Together, we are more than 11.
"Oh, the glorious Green that grows.
"Among states, you are always the splendour.
"On happy times, on difficult times.
"My Hurricane, you are always a winner."
