“We knew that Iceland had beaten Netherlands, so we set ourselves up for a tough match. From the first minutes we began to defend aggressively, which predetermined the big difference in the score. In the final ten minutes, we relaxed a bit, allowing the guests to narrow the gap a little. On the whole, we are happy with a decent result in this “window”.
