We came back from Amsterdam, knowing that we have obtained a team victory. We felt being a team, we were a team, we remained united and we suffered together when we had to suffer and attacked together when we had to attack: we all gave something important to take home this result.
We won for the second time in a row and for the second time we managed to recover. May be we were lucky as well, but luck isn't easy to find, you have to look for it. No doubts, this is an important result. But we are just at the beginning.
The sense of this victory represents perfectly well the period we are going though now. Out of context it isn't worth much. I mean, there's still a long way to go and to be qualified we have to play in the same manner at the Olympic in the second round. But at the same time our good performance won't have any sense if we don't continue improving it.
Personally, I'm satisfied with my performance during the match, embellished by compliments from my coach, my team mates and from the coach of the opposite team (Ajax is an excellent team and it is worth all our respect for the match of the second round especially). So, I keep tight all their words
but I'm already thinking about Bologna!
