We were a bit passive in our defending, but once we organised that after 15 or 20 minutes, we were better.”“Just before the sending off we started to find the gaps and we looked a little bit more of a threat and then Olivier got sent off. It didn’t change too much of the game. If anything, we dominated even more. The story was that we just couldn’t quite make the final pass or the final action in front of goal.”“The players gave absolutely everything on the back of an international break. You want to win but it’s another clean sheet and we’ll just take a point and move on.”last_img
