There were two times he [the referee] stopped it when he was making the decisions. We weren’t sure why.”I was sure it didn’t hit my hand but then you start thinking, ‘did it?’ I tried to make sure it didn’t touch it so I could get the strike away.”We know we have a world-class team so it’s about showing what we can do when things don’t go our way. It’s important we turn it around. We know how good we are, we just have to start showing it on the pitch.” last_img
