"The players showed great tactical discipline and the disappointment was losing to Croatia after gaining confidence from the draw with Spain. We were not as mature in terms of scoring goals and we missed a lot of chances over the three games. But it was a valuable experience and every player went home with clear ideas about the things which need to be worked on."
