At the moment, we don’t know what to expect as a team – we just need to go back to our clubs and have more game time. All the teams out there are gunning to beat Banyana, we just have to be strong,” said Smeda.“We’ve learned from our mistakes and we just have to do better – of course, we didn’t expect to lose – people didn’t expect us to lose this too. In football, if you don’t take chances you’ll never win games instead you’ll be punished. This is the lesson for us. There was a lot of expectations from us by the country following what we’ve achieved in the past as a team. It’s obviously disappointing to go out this early.”
