He added, “The road for us was difficult to reach this stage, and when you face a team better than you, it is difficult to match it, and we may have been waiting for surprises to occur, but they did not appear. There is also pressure from matches. We must learn from this loss and strive to work and learn lessons.”
Crespo concluded his remarks, saying: “We reached the semi-finals with low energy from the pressure of the matches and with the injuries that afflicted us, and we faced a very large team, and I cannot explain what happened today on the field.
