COACH KOOLMAN ON THE GAME:
“It was a tale of two halves, and you can’t show up at half time deciding to start playing. We came out flat and we gave up a chance and that we the only goal of the game. We created chances in the second half but we panicked and that cannot be the case. We have to regroup and learn from these moments. ”
