Yoshida - Regroup Over The International Break

Yoshida - Regroup Over The International Break

Maya Yoshida has backed his fellow Southampton players to regroup over the international break following defeat to Stoke City at the weekend.

Heading to the Bet365 Stadium for the game against Mark Hughes' side, Southampton lost the game two one but Yoshida is backing the team to bounce back when we face Newcastle United in a fortnight's time.

Speaking to saintsfc as he met with the media following the game, Yoshida knew it was all about how we responded at the next time of asking.

'It`s disappointing to lose what was a very important game. The next step now is to make sure we return from the international break in good shape and bounce back with a home win. The fans got behind us and their support was fantastic; hopefully we can regroup and get a positive result from the Newcastle match.'

Having dominated large periods of the game, a sloppy start gave us the uphill battle and he knew we had to start games better in the future.

'We didn`t play well enough in the first half. We afforded them too many opportunities on the counter-attack. Things improved after the break and we made more chances after equalising but we ultimately very unlucky to concede like that at the end. There were similarities here with the United game in the way that we controlled possession. That said, we know that we need to improve going forward and we conceded two goals today so there is work to be done at the back as well.'

Adding.

'Looking just at myself, my job is to help keep things tight at the other end. It is a shame that my goal didn`t lead to a win.'
