The picture of the game did not change in the continuation, despite this, the Serbians, also participating in the European Championship, scored the winning goal after a corner in the 71st minute.
“I’m sorry that we can’t start the last stage of the European Championship preparation with a sense of success, all the more because we had every chance to win the match. In terms of defense and organization, we achieved what we planned, we had possessions, our transitions were fine, but in the attacking third, we made a mistake every now and then,” said Attila Belvon after the last match before the European Championship .
We made bad decisions in finishing, in the last passes, or we were not precise enough, we definitely have to make progress in this until the European Championship.
