Speaking to Arjen Robben admitted his frustration at the defeat and stated his teammates now have to have a hard look at themselves.

Robben said, “Very disappointing. It was a difficult loss because now we have to chase two teams”.

“We needed to win this game and it is frustrating the way we gave it away.

“Of course it was difficult for us, but we need to be very critical of ourselves because we gave away the two goals as presents.

“After that it became even harder because they defended and looked to counterattack.”
