Eric Cantona,Francecoach: It was a really close match and luck was on our side again. We were strong mentally as we didn't crack despite Jeremy Basquaise being sent off. We kept our concentration and fought all the way through. I'm proud of my players but we still need to improve if we're going to get past the next round.
