Keylor Navas: “The team tried but it didn’t come off"

“We played well and controlled the game but two mistakes have cost us two goals”, said Casemiro.
Keylor Navas spoke to the media in the Ciudad de Valencia: "It's difficult. The team tried but it didn’t come off. We must be aware that hard work is the only thing that can help us move forward. In games you have to concentrate for the full 90 minutes in order to win. It was one of those games in which you are controlling the game, they had once chance and scored. I see a lot of ability around me to be able to turn this around".
"It's time to stick together. I hope that fans that come to the stadium are the ones who believe that we can take the team forward because that’s what we need right now. In difficult times every player has to dig deep to use all their talents. We’re going to have a great game against PSG and we’ll win. We’re aware that we’ve not been as consistent as we’d like, but that doesn’t mean that the team is not capable of qualifying, nor winning the games that are coming up".

Keylor Navas: “It's time to stick together”.

I'm very calm because one day I'll have to leave the stage. No one is in football forever. Only God knows when it will be, I sleep well because in every training session I give as much as I can give and I defend this shirt with all my heart. As a footballer I like to feel wanted, that is necessary. My family and friends give me the love and I'll use that to drive me forward. I know that I still have a contract and I will remain calm. I will continue to defend this shirt until the end".

Casemiro: "You have to assess the opponent"
"Two mistakes have led to two goals and that's football. To analyse the game you have to assess the opponent and the fans, who pushed them on. We played well, controlled the game, but in two mistakes we conceded two goals".

"You have to go game by game. We were growing, playing well, and we have done some good things, but we know that we can not make mistakes because PSG will punish us. We know that LaLiga is almost impossible, we would have to come back, but it is an important competition for us and it gives us confidence, so we have to go match by match”.
