PSV head coach Guus Hiddink announced at the post-match press conference that the game was turned upside down, just when PSV seemed to be in control. He hoped the third goal would not be of overriding importance for the final decisions in the Champions League group E.A tough nut"We have collected three precious points and are on our way of achieving our aim. PSV were a tough nut to crack, but we managed to beat them. Having a numerical advantage, we showed discipline and concentration and we played at a high pace. We clinically scored three fine goals and our passing game paid off. After the break we remained wary. It is generally known that a team reduced to ten men often performs well. And PSV are always dangerous, even when they are reduced to ten men. You cannot simply cruise to a victory when you play them", explained Fenerbahçe coach Christoph Daum, who paid tribute to each of his eleven players individually at the post-match press conference. Turning point"When you see the final score, it looks like it has been a cat and mouse game”, said Guus Hiddink. "But the game was turned upside down, just when PSV seemed to be in control. It was a bitter turning point, on the brink of half time. We immediately realized that we would face a formidable challenge of making it a game. Yet I think we performed pretty well, in particular the lads that were considered doubtful. I think the decisions in this group will take place in the final stages. I hope the third goal will not be of overriding negative importance." Lucius injuryHiddink has more worries, now that Theo Lucius has sustained an injury. "Another injury blow; he has picked up a hamstring injury. I can’t judge how serious it is, but his name is now also on the extensive casualty list. A scan will reveal the exact nature of the injury." On arrival in Holland on Thursday afternoon, PSV will prepare for the domestic league game against sc Heerenveen. PSV will make the trip to Heerenveen next Sunday.
