After playing the match against Gamba Osaka-Team Manager Finke  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Thirteenth Sec. against Gamba Osaka

We will have to reflect upon what happened during the match today a while later when we are in a more calm state, especially on what happened towards the end of the match. I would like to analyze what happened today in a calm manner rather than make some careless comments right after the match.
I felt that our team played really well today especially during the first half of the match. For this reason, it was very unfortunate that we lost a goal in the way that we did during injury time after the first half of the match.
I thought our team had remained highly concentrated until we lost our first goal. I also thought that the team had good control of the ball. However, after we lost the first goal like we did, some of the players started to play insecurely. As a result, our team gave the match away with an own goal. In the end, the team lost the game dramatically during injury time as you saw. The match ended with such a sad result for Urawa Reds.
