"This is the type of game ISL needs for promotion of football here. I am proud of my players because they never lose faith. "It is hard to take a draw in the last minute, but they got up and fought for a chance [to win] and we got it. I am satisfied with the team's performance," the Costa Rican said after Saturday's match. According to the coach, the hosts were more aggressive in the second half. "[In the] second half, we were more close to each other. In the first half, when we tried to go in front we were not synchronised. The team improved [in the break]. We told the players we still have 45 minutes to go for it [win] and be more aggressive and they did it," Guimaraes said.
