Portugal boss Fernando Santos analyzes late win over Egypt
“In the first half Portugal were better, but with less chances, especially in the offensive aspect. Some lack of close play, João and Bernardo were clinging to the lines. We planned to get the ball but we could have done more,” Santos said.
“In the second half, we did not go as well as we were, things ended up not happening. The game was broken, we conceded a goal and lacked defensive aggressiveness, we should have tightened the play more and not allow the goal.”
The 64-year-old spoke of his players’ mobility which he believes was the reason behind the goals saying: “Eventually, in those 15 minutes, they were very mobile players. There were periods there when it was a little hurried, then the team managed to be more together and we created chances to score a goal which we ended up doing,” he concluded.
