Although it is our first year in this challenging league, we have our goals and we fight with all our might to achieve good results and realize our goals. We identify our deficiencies and exert every effort to make up them. In the 10th week of the super league, we exhibited very low performance unseemly to our team and experienced an unexpected defeat. That’s why we work much harder to achieve our goals. We consider that match as a bad experience showing us our deficiencies. As a team, we took a lesson from this match, we have identified in what zones we have deficiencies and worked hard to raise our performance. We are focused on our goals, we fight without lowering our motivation and concentration to achieve the goals that we have determined pre-league.
