REACTIONS. Red Devils after San Marino: "Everyone in the dressing room was angry"September 7, 2019
0-4 against San Marino. The Red Devils did not make a very good turn in their European Championship qualifying match on Friday evening.
Youri Tielemans was in the base and received a four in the assessment. He also knew that something went wrong when he went into the dressing room at rest. “Yes, the trainer was angry. And rightly so. Everyone was angry. The team performance had to be much, much better. We have to build on that, "says the midfielder of Leicester City.
Jan Vertonghen also had his reservations. "It was a seriously strange match," it sounded afterwards. The first half was difficult, the second half went a lot better. ”Was the Devils underestimated? “Yes, we thought in advance: good field, perfect conditions. They collapsed, slowed play and we went with that pace. We wanted to force it too much individually. Then you look at each other for a moment and you think "How is this possible?"
“The second half brought more speed and depth. It went with ups and downs. That is not necessarily by individuals, because the team performance was certainly not good. But we certainly cannot dramatize. We are at the top of the group and the three points have arrived. I'm not going to make it better than it used to be, but an important match is coming up on Monday and we can take an important step towards the European Championship there. ”
Nacer Chadli was also allowed to make his minutes. He scored immediately. “Yes, I am very happy that I was allowed to play. I am also happy that I have come in well, with an assist and goal I have been able to help the team well. ”The Anderlecht player was lucky during the break. “San Marino was defensively good. We also didn't have many chances for rest, we had to move more. Dries and I did well. I was not in the dressing room during rest, I was warming up. ”
