“In the first half he missed two chances, the second one was a big one, so it was important for him. He’s working well, he’s a happy guy and tries everything. He’s positive. If I had to choose somebody to score the winning goal I would go with him.
“Everything is connected; when you are full of confidence you are fluent in your decisions, you choose well your movements and the number of touches, when to hold, when to keep possession. When you lose confidence you lose that. Yes he can do much better but one goal is very important.”
