TC Sports boss Mohamed Nizam said that while not being able to win was disappointing, his side should still take pride in their efforts. Despite losing 3-2 against regional giants Bengaluru FC at home in the 2018 AFC Cup playoff, Nizam is satisfied with the performance of his boys’.
“We played really well, but we did mistakes on few things which we should have focused more”.
“Actually in the first goal we conceded, what really happened was players heard a whistle from outside when the ball was about to drop, and the players stopped”.
TC Sports missed numerous chances to score goals. Nizam noted that if those chances had been converted to goals, then the result would have been on his side.
“We created so many chances but we couldn’t score. If we could have atleast converted half of the chances we could have won the match”.
The reverse leg of the match will be played on 20th February at Bengaluru.
“We will try to correct the mistakes we made here when we play abroad”.
