“Of course we are happy but also a little bit relieved, it was close. I think we played okay first half even if we didn’t create the big chances … at least we played a little bit better,” he said on SuperSport TV.

“Then after we scored we were nervous and dropped down too low and now you can see these grey hairs. But okay, we came back again and scored again.

“Overall we are happy, but I hope we can be a little better when we have the ball and when we lead because I don’t know if we are going to manage to continue like this otherwise.

“But of course we are happy to be in the semi-final, it’s fun.”

The Swede elaborated on what his team needs to work on as they seek further improvement in their overall game.

“We are a little too small passes around the box, we had to be a little more straight on. I don’t think we had one or two shots in the first half and that’s too little, we have to create more big chances, or more finishes,” he added.

“But that’s fun also, we have something to work on … we have to analyse this tomorrow.”
