"I think we saw a very close game, a very tight game which we luckily won because Panama didn't finish off the chances that they had. Our team had a very hard three weeks, and they had tired legs today and you could see that. After the red card, we couldn't pressure enough anymore to create more chances. Overall, I think it really paid off doing this, not only playing a game in the U.S., but coming down here. A lot of the young players learned their lesson today."
