In the second half, Villarreal decided to defend as a block but had an opportunity and took advantage of it. Football is like that, a gesture can change everything”, he observed.
“We had good chances in the first half, we had less in the second because Villarreal started defending with 11, clearly trying to extend the game. Then this goal changed everything, ”he reinforced.
