"We felt bad after losing against the Dutch but we tried to give them a challenge. We did that, but it wasn't good enough. We felt bad at the moment, but we can now  reflect on two fantastic weeks. We demonstrated that we were good enough to beat England and France and that the Swedish way of playing can achieve good results. Obviously the defeats against Denmark and the Netherlands hurt us but they should not obscure the positives."
