What did Jonas Eidevall say after the FA Cup final loss?
âIt was a poor performance on our part, in terms of quality. It’s not the effort that fails, the players were trying very, very hard on the pitch, but we don’t have enough quality in our passing game today or in our defensive game and it’s very disappointing in a game like this we can not perform better.
The only thing we can do is learn from it and come back stronger … it’s so important [to respond against Barcelona]. It will all start with 100% believing in what we are trying to do on the pitch and showing ourselves and everyone else that we can do much, much better than what we have done today.
It could be another tough night for Arsenal if Barcelona run out of comfortable winners. Arsenal 0-3 Barcelona
