“I think it was a good start and then after we dropped down a level in belief and we made mistakes and the opponent punished us,”

“I can understand that [a lack of belief] after last year but it’s not necessary. They are good players; self-belief is from yourself.

“I know it could happen, but I think we should have done better, that’s clear, but also it will not come overnight. Today we had a worse period during the first half and we have to learn from that.

That’s also clear.”
