It would be nice to finish top, of course. There would be a lot of prestige to do that against the host nation. But second or even third ... who knows what would work out easier in terms of the draw?
I didn't see our goal. I was looking to make a change at the time and I had my back to the action. I am told it was excellent and of course it was well deserved. Also, importantly today, our defence were excellent. OK, we gave away the penalty but other than that we didn't let them have too many chances.
