“We put a lot of effort in to get a performance like this for 65 or 70 minutes and we do this as a team, so sometimes we lack a bit of composure and maybe we are not too relaxed in front of goal.

“That is the price we pay. We have the quality and we trust our guys and we are able to score more goals.”
