Juniors better than Albania

Prosinečki: We could not blame the players at all

After the match between Italy and B&H, a press conference was held at the Juventus Stadium, where Robert Prosinečki addressed the media.

 

The head coach of the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina said on the match:

“We could not blame guys at all; they played a good match. We had chances and the result could have been different. At 1:0 we had a chance to increase the advantage and the match could have gone in the other direction. We played one of the best matches, and we lost from one big team that punished every mistake. I do not think we deserved to lose, but it is football. The guys did their best, played super football and it was a shame that we did not return home with at least one point.”

When asked how he motivated the team after the defeat of Finland, Prosinečki answered:

“I am sorry that in my mandate we poorly played one match, and we made the situation from it as if nothing was good. Against Finland, we did not enter the match properly, they were better. We were not running; we did not have a willing moment. Maybe we thought it would be easy and, in the end, we were defeated by Finland from which, I believe, we are better. Today there have been some mistakes in the defence, but this is normal against a team like Italy that has a lot of quality players. Nevertheless, we can boast of flightiness, dedication and quality. Tonight, we showed that we could deal with every national team. The result was not what it was supposed to be and what we wanted, but it’s football.”

The coach also praised the audience:

“We are used to being followed by a large number of fans, wherever we play. They were once again phenomenal; they are great support. I’m also sorry for them that we did not achieve a better result. They made a phenomenal ambience.”
