Lazio winger Felipe Anderson found the positives in the team’s 2-2 draw against Olympique Marseille last night.
Speaking to Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 28-year-old Brazilian winger first touched on the team’s performance in the draw against the French side.
We came in and made a bit of a mistake in the first half, taking away our confidence. But we’re growing in our reading of the game, learning to react and not get down.
That goal gave us motivation, we went into the second half and did well.
The coach asked us to give more and anticipate the passes a bit, he fixed things that we were doing wrong.
It was then seen that we carried the pressure better in the second half, we made them make mistakes. We’re sorry to concede a goal like that, but we can play against anyone.
Finally, Felipe Anderson spoke about his goal in the match and the importance of picking up the result.
I like to score, especially in these decisive moments, today it was an important goal that gave us desire.
But what counts is winning, even if I don’t score and we win I’m happy.
