Coach Giannis Goumas
24/05/75
"The semi-final was our best performance of the tournament but we ended up conceding four. A lapse of concentration at a set play led to the first goal and an individual error put us two behind in the space of three minutes. At this age, it's not easy to deal with disappointment and we collapsed. But I had to congratulate my players for their huge efforts in the tournament and the fighting spirit which took them into the top four in Europe."
