    How can a coach be satisfied with a barren performance and expect something different in the tournament proper, it beats my imagination. Does that mean a similar or possibly worse situation will be good enough for him? As fans we need to hear the coach tell his players that it is unacceptable to draw a match because it doesn’t win you trophies. That way he creates a winning mentality in the players but if a voach simply sees that the team were unlucky not to have scored it sounds like he is saying “do just enough and wait on luck”. I am not confident going into this tournament. Maybe their is something i am missing. I would hate for the fate that befell The Eaglets falls to the Olympic Eagles.
