The last match that could not be won.

“To be honest we seemed to be doing better at the start of the game but from the slightest mistake we had to concede goals straight away and I have to admit that in the first half they were the ones who performed well. More than a lot, even in the second half we did a better job but couldn’t score a goal which is no excuse for losing 5 games in a row and we are sure to come back to work. Excellent again after the national team break.”
