“Another goal would be fair for everything we produced in this match”

Pizzi: “It was clear, everyone saw, it was a handball. The referee awards a penalty and assistant referee ends up saying it is not a penalty. It is an unfair decision, but we can't be complaining about that. There are things we can’t control. What we can control is on the pitch and I think we did good work. We just needed to score another goal and I think it would be fair for everything we produced in this match.”
