We’re obviously delighted to have won the match. It’s always important for any team in this type of competition to win their first game. Beating a side like Korea DPR doesn’t come down to chance. We’ve all worked extremely hard for everything to come together at just the right time. The victory will give us a real confidence boost ahead of the next match.
