Hunt’s Words

In the post-match interview, Hunt labelled the tie as a ‘practice match’ given that they had dominated possession throughout the 90 minutes.

In trying to find a silver lining, Hunt mentioned, "We gotta keep going, we've been disappointing at times, unbelievable at times and disappointing so that's got a lot to do with... I know, don't worry," to SuperSport at the end of the game.

Social Media Buzz
