"In my opinion that was a decisive moment, an important moment of the game which would have been rewarded with a penalty because it was a penalty. I've seen it already in the video but I understand he didn't see it.

"We created enough to make a different score. We had to go behind in the result so when that happens you concede more space in certain moments. I believe we could have had more from the game, we had opportunities to do it."
