It wasn't my impression when I spoke to the team before that they were under pressure before the match because the Sweden game was on at the same time. Our team in this match was missing the ease of play and the classiness we normally display. Also the dynamism that led to the goal scoring opportunities was not there, so we deserve to be eliminated."
