“You don’t know what is going on in their mind in this kind of situations and I don’t think any footballer go into a game to lose, but all I can say is that they should keep their head up and continue working hard because, in every loss, there is always a lesson to learn.” He told brila.net.
“They have to reflect and see what they did wrong and what they can improve on because there is always another chance, but it is difficult when you have to leave it for another team to decide. ”
