“But we've the facility and therefore the strength to show the sport to ourselves, from 2-0 to 2-2, then we create the higher chances to win.

“So, it’s a disappointing result, but I’m proud of what the boys did during the sport .”

On fighting back

“This is one side and therefore the other side is how we are creating chances to attain . The goals are coming. Today they came, two good goals. within the end, I’m happy, but I’m not satisfied with the result because we didn’t proceed within the cup.”

On falling short on penalties

On learning from the weekend

“Every time we take something from the game. Winning or losing, we always take something to build on and it comes from that.
