Speaking in his post-match interview, Coach Samuel Boadu indicated that although he is disappointed his team could not amass maximum points, he is proud of the fighting spirit shown by the players.

“It is really bad that we could only manage to score a point but there is more room for improvement. For Hearts, we are not happy about the performance now and the point so far but we have to work hard to improve,” Coach Samuel Boadu said after the Great Olympics game.

The gaffer added, “We were down at certain moments but I love the fighting spirit of players and I believe if they keep on like that it would help the team.”
