Bella Kotchap: Armel Bella Kotchap, What was the key to win this important game in Israel at the end of 1: 0?
Armel Bella Kotchap: We wanted to stand compact and find spaces forward. This is only partially succeeded in the first half. The last pass and the last determination have missed a bit. We are happy about this victory. He may be a bit happy in the end, but we love to take him.
Bella Kotchap: Both teams produced a total of many mistakes. Did the nervousness play a big role in this game for both partitioning?
Bella Kotchap: I think it was not the nervousness. We knew that a very aggressive opponent approaches us, we knew that the opponent stands compact, holds the gaps and defends very aggressively forward. It was very difficult for us to get in. After 15 minutes we got better access, in the second half we have dropped a bit and lurked on counterattack. Thanks to us, that’s god.
