"It's disappointing because we started the game really well and put them on their heels which most teams don't do against Brazil. Though they had some chances, we went into the half at 2-0 and felt good about it. Then, a series of good plays by them - maybe we fell a little bit asleep - and a good goal and they're right back in the game. So from that point on it was going to be tough. They put us under a lot of pressure and eventually they just wore us down."
