Working together as a team

“We might have courage, but everyone is working effectively, together as a team," says Peter Olayinka on Slavia performance at Barcelona.
“I feel really good after the game. And the whole team as well. I think we must be proud of ourselves. I mean it is a good result for us and now we have even more chance,” Peter Olayinka said after a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou.

“We might have courage, but everyone is working effectively. We are working together as a team and as the coach instructed us. In last game we saw that we actually could do something, maybe even win, and this was big motivation for all of us. And I think it helped us in the game at Barcelona,” Nigerian forward continued on Slavia performance.

“Our goalkeeper Ondřej Kolář was fantastic. It was unbelievable, I saw him saving a lot of goals. It is fantastic how he improved, I can’t even express it,” Olayinka stressed the important saves by Slavia keeper.

Slavia are surprisingly
more effective in away games in Champions League remaining unbeaten after 1-1 at San Siro and 0-0 at Camp Nou. What is the difference according to Slavia winger? “I can’t tell but maybe we are more motivated when playing away. I think we do play good in away games, we are more compact and more effective as a team. Now we have to get a point at home.”

And what experience it is to play at such famous stadium as Camp Nou? “It was my dream to play here. Even at Playstation I have been using Barcelona playing at Nou Camp. Now we could see the atmosphere and it’s a dream come true.”
