“I’m pleased with how we’re doing things, and in particular with how we’re playing. The first 15 or 20 minutes were spectacular in pressing high up and how we kept hold of the ball. It was a very good first half. In the second we had to dig in a bit because this opposition can cause you problems, that’s to be expected.
