The Argentine defender was the star performer in the match, which ended goalless, as the tournament got underway. "It was a tough match with both teams a little anxious and it showed. They had more experience than us. But we fought for 90 minutes and I believe we were the better team. Matches are determined by what happens in the area and that's where we lacked a little bit of sharpness."
"In these types of competitions it's incredibly important that you don't concede at home."
