We defended very good in the final part of the game, Rêma also had some great saves, and it was amazing. We knew Slovenians were very good one-on-one and we were ready for that fight.

It is really hard now. We wanted to win this game, but we had a lot of problems in the attack. We made too many mistakes and Portugal made fast breaks and scored some easy goals. That was one of the main reasons for the result.
