Suwon boss rues missed chances against Nagoya

Suwon Bluewings boss Cha Bum-kun rued his sides missed chances in the loss to Nagoya Grampus in the Asian Champions League last night.

The Bluewings went down 2-1 to Nagoya to end their run in the competition and Cha was disappointed with the final result although it may have been a different story with more attacking options.

"First of all, I'd like to congratulate Nagoya Grampus for advancing to the quarter-finals," said Cha.

"We played the game today as we usually do. We created many chances in the first half but we couldn't produce a goal against them.

"On the other hand, our opponents made the most of the single chance they had and that goal changed the course of the game.

"We have had some worries about the touch of our attackers and the biggest problem was that we couldn't score more goals.

"We had Edu with us today but he had been sidelined for a long time due to injury and he was not fully fit.

"Not only him but our attackers all lacked the feeling and touch of the ball. That was one of the reasons for the defeat today.

"Even if we had won, I have a feeling that it would have been difficult for us to get through the upcoming matches in the ACL with our current attacking abilities.

"Although we lost today, our team condition is improving and we want to have good preparation to play well in the K-League."
