Keegan Puts Defeat Into Perspective!

Maximuliam Nicu struck the only goal of the game 10 minutes from time to settle a contest low on excitement for the few thousand fans at the ONO Estadi.

Having lost at Doncaster last week in a match that was poor (to say the least), this defeat was obviously against better opposition, but just as painful on the eye.

Kevin Keegan: "It was a good work out from the point of a view of it being a pre-season game. Some players lost three kilos out there.

"But there are a lot of things to improve - that's why you have pre-season games. I think you will see a big step up in the next game.

"I think Jonas (Gutierrez) is an outstanding player. He got a little introduction, but there's a lot more to come from him.

"The players are working out what he is. He's a good athlete, and very strong. He's a good team player."
