"It's always good that you look at your team and look at where there are loopholes and stop them from scoring," he said.

"Once you are leading and concede two goals, it's not the best but normally what you need to do is to psyche everyone up.

"It's important that whatever happens, you put it behind and look forward to the next game, which is very, very important. You learn from it and develop from there," he added.
