"We wanted to respond, but mostly play a good game as a team. We put in place a plan to counter them well. Unfortunately, we allowed a goal on a mistake, but we kept our heads up. I'm really happy with the game of many players. We played really well as a team. James grew in the game through every minute. He made a mistake but did really good saves in the second half. This win is well deserved. The less you play games, the more they become must-win games. It was important to win this one."
"Just realizing we came out slower in the last couple of games, it was our important for us to come out strong and play hard. I thought we played very well in the first half. As a player I try to stay ready until I get the call to play. This one was against Gonzalo, someone I watched play a lot. But for us it's about staying compact in the back. That was a massive result for us before going back home and rejuvenate. Hopefully we can continue on this road next week."
"It's was important for the team. We needed that win. We have a good team and good players. I know what I can do and I feel confident with my team and the staff. I enjoy being on the field and playing football."
