This was a good experience for all the players. I hope and believe that they will draw their own conclusions and take them with them into the future. We hadn't planned to perform in such a way. Everything we set out to do on the pitch...we didn't do. We were not aggressive enough; we didn't shut down spaces well enough; and we didn't attack with enough conviction. We learned that, in a tournament like this, it  is not sufficient to play well only for short periods.
