Jose Molina said, “We beat Mumbai who have such a good attacking line and scored three goals against Mumbai’s defence which is also good. That goes to show how well we have played.”
“The confidence is that we have been very stable during the whole part of the league stage and we have always stuck together in good times and in bad and in our way of playing,” said the Costa Rican coach.
