Nedbank Cup

Sono: We Were Nervous

Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono admitted his side looked nervous when the game against Orlando Pirates got underway on Sunday.
 
Ezenkosi conceded in the third minute and were dominated for most of the game as Pirates cruised to a 3-1 win in their Nedbank Cup last-16 clash.
 
Sono said: "In the first half they were nervous. In the first 10 minutes we didn't know what was happening. We were very nervous. Pirates should have been 3-0 up in the first 10 minutes.
 
"In the second half we started doing well. Even after we scored we did well. 
 
"We gave it our best but now we have to focus on the league. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise to be knocked out early, so we can focus on the league
 
"This game also gave us an idea of who should play in the next game, because this is a good team. Especially in the second half we created three chances."
