"Romell didn't control himself. We had to fight with 10 players again and it cost us. It's our fourth game in 10 days and the last two we played with 10 men. The schedule is tight and it won't be easy. For most of the game we tried to see if we could come back to the score. I made Karifa enter the game to see something with the New England game in mind."
"I was nervous at the beginning. I have been training well for a while. I was expecting to be subbed-in eventually, and I prepared myself accordingly. The coach told me to be ready, and I have been working hard to make that moment happen. He told me to relax, to play just the same way I do during training and to have fun."
"We received three red cards in the last three games so it makes the game really difficult. We are all in the game and have feelings and everything, but it can't happen. We started very well and with that card it made our life very complicated. But even with that, we defended poorly."
