He said: “When you lose a match it is something we don’t like but we recognise that Croatia had the better team tonight and my young players made some mistakes,” said Rohr. “The first goal is coming on a corner, the second one also on a corner and a penalty.
“I think these young players need time to learn, sometimes they were a little bit naive on the set pieces but we will work on it.” He added.
Speaking further, the former Bayern Munich defender said: “We have to accept this defeat and now we have to win against Iceland, all is possible still.”
“If we win the next game all is possible for the qualification.
“We were satisfied with the organisation of the team defensively but we didn’t have so many opportunities to score.
“You need to make at least four points if you want to be qualified, nothing is lost all is in our hands so let’s be positive we believe we can do it.
“We have the youngest team in the world at this World Cup, let them learn from this match.
“I think we can do better than what we did today.” He concluded.
Rohr and his players would be hoping to atone for the loss when they face tournament first timers Iceland on Friday, June 22, where a win is almost non-negotiable in the bid to qualify for the knockout stages.
