“A game like this belongs to the process which such a young team must go through,’ Low told the Daily Mail after the game.
“What I liked was that we believed in it again. The team showed terrific fight and we had a little of the game luck that we have been missing sometimes recently.
“In the first half we really played very, very well with the strikers putting together some very, very good processes.”
