Tinkler: We gave it our all

Tinkler has praised his side despite their 2-1 aggregate loss and leaves Tunisia a "proud" coach.

"I think we did give it all. I'm very, very proud of the boys," Tinkler said as quoted by Sowetan Live.

"We started a bit nervy in the first-half. The players were a bit scared to concede. We were giving the ball away cheaply and playing the long ball.

Tinkler says that Etoile were winning the second ball and were quicker than the Sea Robbers and felt their goal was fortuitous.

"The best chance in the first half actually came from us. I thought Thabo Rakhale should have done a lot better, and we would have gone in at half time at least 1-1, with everything open again.

"In the second-half we responded extremely well. We told the players to put the ball on the deck, pass it and move with a lot more speed."
