It was a wild match. We made one mistake and suddenly went 1-0 down, but we came back superbly. Then they equalised when we made a second mistake, but again we showed a great reaction. We came out for the second half and all of a sudden they level the score at 3-3. That was tough for the team because they’d invested so much to fight their way back into it.
