Aleš Mertelj, Slovenia midfielder


We are very disappointed, because we came back after England went ahead 2-1, but they scored again after 20 seconds. We wanted this point, but we didn't get it, so we are disappointed. We'll receive some points in the other matches. We know that England are the favourites in our group.

We have to look for points in other matches. September will be here soon. We want to win matches and we have a good team. We have to do better on the pitch. We have to score more goals and we'll be better.
