Coach: Hakan Tecimer
"We had a player sent off in a match we had to win, and that obliged us to take risks. But, overall, we didn't play the way we wanted to. We only played well at certain moments when we put our ideas into practice on the pitch. However, in our first two games we were not calm enough, made rash decisions, made simple mistakes – and you dont really have a chance if you make those kinds of errors. But taking part in such a well-organised and competitive final tournament was a good experience for us."
