“We did not take our chances in the game and I think the Moroccans were lucky in the end. We were expecting the game to end in a draw.
“I want to congratulate the Moroccans on their win and my boys for fighting really hard. We have two matches left in the group so we have to concentrate on them so we can progress to the next stage.”
