“We played for 30 minutes trying to squeeze out the last ounce of energy we had, but we suffered under the pressure of Sidigas and we gave them too much space in attack, so much so that they shot very effectively in the first 20 minutes. The third quarter then followed and we reacted well but we bungled 2 or 3 determining possessions that brought Avellino back into the game. In short, our team fought for 30 minutes, then, rightly so, we moved away from the game at that point seeing that we had the Cup in Antwerp on Tuesday.”
