First of all, I am proud of my players performance. I think we played better in the first half, and have the opportunities to scored 4 to 5 goals. But in the last moment of first half we have lost the goal, to let the opponent feel more confident to start counter attack in the second half. During the second half, due to two games in one week, both teams are a bit tired, we have scored two goals, and let the opponent scored one, basically we can won the game, it was showed by us the spirit of never give up and strong quality of determination.
