“A lot, a lot. But, we conceded a completely unnecessary first goal and we should not forget that. That’s a big part of the game. There were two big parts. You have to defend and we have to score. In one situation we didn’t defend well enough, so they could score, we made a mistake if you want. And we didn’t use their mistakes or we didn’t use the things we created. And that’s why we have the result”.
