"It was a disppointing result for us because at least we wanted a point out of this match. I don't want to use the circumstances as an excuse, its clear that it is very tough on our boys but I don't think that is the reason we lost this match. I must say we started very well as we did the previous two matches but we missed our chances and Iran came bacck into the game." Albert Stuivenberg, Netherlands coach
