CAN: after a “nightmare” match for Ivory Coast, Gasset “hopes” for a place in the round of 16

Jean-Louis Gasset (coach of Ivory Coast, after the heavy 0-4 defeat against Equatorial Guinea): “In life, there are nightmare matches. We concede a goal one minute before half-time on the opponent's only opportunity. We had control of the game, the chances, the opportunities and we came in 0-1 at half-time. It's already a bit hard. In the second half, it's the same scenario, we are dominant, the chances arrive, the goals are scored then refused. We call this the disaster scenario.

(...) I don't think it's about the state of mind. When I see the players in the locker room crying it hurts me. We tried, we gave everything, I think. When you have a scenario like this, bordering on nightmare, there is not much to say or do. (...) We won a match, the four best third-placed teams are qualified, we will hope. But when you wait for the results of others, it’s not a good sign.”
