"I think we started the game well, but then we let them get a bit of control in the game. We had a few half-chances but we didn't score.

"Then they scored the first goal and from that moment on we tried to chase the game. Then they scored the second one which was a big blow. At the end we kept pushing, but it was not enough.

"We should have done much better today because with the quality that we have in the team, I think we should have gone through. But we didn't deserve it because we weren't good enough.

"We should have scored earlier, I think maybe in the first half with the half-chances that we created. The last pass today was not good enough - we always get in the right position but the last pass to each other was not good enough and I think that's what killed us today."
