“ It’s very bitter to leave the tournament at the group stage. We had many of opportunities during this game but were very unlucky and now we out of the tournament” Sami said after that match.

” We studied Togo good, but to win these games you have to score and we did not except by penalty and that is not enough to qualify” he added.
