The boys played a really tough match with the local team from Thailand and they were a difficult team because they have a lot of variants, but we managed to control their action.
We controlled the game in the possession, in the transitions and defensively. Football gives you surprises… we couldn’t score the penalty and emotions started to come into play but we fixed the situation at half time. And then from there I think we did a very good job in second half in maintaining the attacks.
We missed a lot of opportunities, and normally teams go down in that situation. But we didn’t go down and that is the fighting spirit, the characteristic of this team. It was a difficult game especially the second half but the three points are the most important thing for us.
