We lost a strong match yesterday. We needed to win this game. We were totally focused on this goal. And we have to win our next two games. We played with some pressure. We commit some mistakes. Tunisia played very well, it was a close game. They did a very good job on defence. We had a lot of work to put the ball on the floor. Now we have to prepare for the next two games.
