Conceding goals and losing wins always hurts, to have two points taken away in the last seconds of added time is even more painful. This was exactly what happened on Saturday afternoon as our Blue-Whites drew 1-1 with FC Augsburg. Those who spoke to the media after the final whistle were visibly disappointed. “I feel terrible. Why we’ve conceded a goal in the final seconds yet again, I can’t say. I can’t explain it,” Davie Selke said, almost speechless. herthabsc.com have collected all the reaction from the Olympiastadion here.
Davie Selke: I feel terrible. Why we’ve conceded a goal in the final seconds yet again, I can’t say. I can’t explain it. The cause of it all was what happened at the corner flag. I don’t know exactly what the referee saw there. I know the other player kicked me in the “crown jewels”, but that was ignored. After that, they got a free kick 25 yards from the corner flag and in the end the ball has ended up in our net. We disagreed with the decision and really wanted to win this game.
Dennis Jastrzembski: I’m annoyed, furious even. We didn’t let anything get past us for the entire game, earned our win, but then conceded such a stupid goal from nothing. It’s so annoying, especially since we fought well as a team and played such a good game.
Marco Richter: The whole team is fed up that we have have given another game away in the last minute. It’s such a shame – we would have loved to pick up a win here. This point doesn’t really help, though, and now we need to analyse the game and learn from it. We need to take the positive stuff like our attitude and the way we worked during the week to Stuttgart. To play against Augsburg for the first time in 10 years was a weird feeling, but the fact I left there on good terms and am happy here now means it was a great experience. To be able to score was a great moment – it would have been a perfect day if we won, but it wasn’t to be.
