MATCH QUOTES

“We’ll give it a go [scoring at least two against one of the best defences in the world] because you can’t disregard any possibility in football. “But I’m obviously disappointed. “We were caught sleeping for both goals, and against a team of this calibre you can’t afford to lose concentration for a second. Tony Barton.
