This time, we prepared for and played the match differently. By positioning ourselves differently and that worked very well. The decisive moment was conceding the goal so quickly in the second half. That took the team some energy, which then returned with the penalty kick defended by Handanović against Milner. But it was not enough for a better result against an opponent of exceptional quality.
