Poor defense cost us the match says Sreejesh

Another day and yet another defeat for India. And this time, both the mistakes and the margin was more. After losing to Germany 1-0 in the opener, India fell prey to tireless Argentina who completely outdid the Indian defense to walk away with a 4-2 win.

Even after taking lead, Indian defense could hardly do anything as Argentina overpowered them with their strong counter-attacks.

In a match that India should have won as coach Roelant Oltmans had said during the break in the half-time, disappointment clearly reflected on the face of the players as they walked towards each end of the stadium acknowledging the crowd for their support.

P.R. Sreejesh, whose good goalkeeping skills has been the only positive with the team so far, looked most disappointed and kept discussing the mistakes with his team mates as he walked towards the media persons waiting to shoot an answer for the dismal show.

“Pretty bad,” is all the goalkeeper could say the moment the media surrounded him. “We showed a good match but the mistakes we did in the defense probably changed the score line,” he said irritably.

“The plus-point of the Argentina team is that they come up with a good counter attack and we were completely beaten there.”
