“We created so many chances and Guinea (Bissau) got like three; if you check the stats we had opportunities to score. But, It’s one of those days, we didn’t score, we bad luck.

“I’m sure if we play them again, luck will be on our side.”

” But no, we didn’t play under any pressure. We just want to get ready for the return leg, and go out there and win.”

“Every player out there put their heart in in, we have to react first. We were disappointed, but we want the fans o stay supporting us.”
