Comment of the Gert Engels(Team-Manager)
”The turning point was that our opponent made the first goal. Just like us, they are one of the few teams that does not give up goals easily. Their strongest point is their solid defense just as was seen today. For this reason, as soon as they made the first goal, they were able to play the game the way they had envisaged in their game plan. Even though we had good control over the game both in the first and second half and had several opportunities to score by free kicks, good shots and deliveries, we could not make goals in the end. It is often quite difficult to play a winning game in such situations.”
