Dang. Sounds like it was a barn-burner of a game though. One little blip, keep your spirits up boys, you have lots more games to play and win.

Darn, that was a squeaker with the Swiss, a very formidable opponent. Like they said, there are no weak teams in this, anybody could land on the podium.

No worries lads, you are up to the task, and more. Go get 'em!
