Club Brugge of Belgium attacker, Arnaut Danjuma is picking positives from his side’s 1-0 loss at home to Borussia Dortmund of Germany in the UEFA Champions League, as he believes his team can recover to pick points in subsequent matches.
It took a very late goal for Dortmund to eke out victory against their hosts on Tuesday, and footballlive.ng reports that Danjuma reckons if Brugge play to their own pace in subsequent matches they will recover and go far in the elite competition.
The Nigeria-born youngster, who is already a Dutch youth international, said Tuesday’s defeat was painful but, at the same time, an eye opener for him and his colleagues.
Danjuma admitted he was disappointed Club Brugge fell to a late goal and believes the result was harsh, considering that he and his teammates put in a lot of hard work.
However, Danjuma, who played for 76 minutes for the Belgian champions before he was replaced by fellow-Nigerian, Bonaventure Dennis, stressed that Club Brugge will recover to shine in Champions League
Danjuma, who came close to a goal but was denied by the opposing goalkeeper, said: “The result is disappointing.
“In the first half we played our own game, we had more ball possession. But we started with confidence at the second half as well and that makes the final result a bit harsh.
“I think everyone can see now that if we play our own game we can do pretty well. I think we will just need to continue like this and the points will follow.”
