After 65 minutes, Karsdorp lost his marker Marin Leovac, who set up the opening goal, and although Jens Toornstra equalised, the youngster was again at fault for Rijeka retaking the lead as he misjudged a long ball, allowing Kramaric through on goal to score.

Speaking after the match Karsdorp said, “For this defeat I blame myself enormously.”

“I have shed some tears because ive left my teammates in the lurch.We did well in the first half, but when i came on it went wrong”
