"It was two completely different matches in one"
Alvalade skipper João Pinto looking to lead his side to victory in Italy
Sporting CP roller hockey skipper João Pinto knows that his side will have to improve in the CERH European League to keep the season's international campaign alive. Reflecting on the weekend's defeat to Forte dei Marmi, Pinto affirmed the need to reduce errors.
"It was two completely different matches in one. We started well, but we made mistakes, That simply cannot happen. If we play in Italy like we did in the first 15 minutes today, we will win. We have to win in Italy and if they managed it here then we can do it there. It has happened already in the CERS Cup and we will do everything we can to make it happen again."
