ISL 2022: Mumbai City coach Des Buckingham slams sloppy defending, says ‘We gave away two sloppy goals’ after loss against Hyderabad FC

Rohit Danu (14′) and Joel Chianese (41′) gave the Nizams a two-goal lead in the first half as the Islanders only managed to pull one back through Mourtada Fall (76′). “You always have a hope of a comeback if you’re behind. So, yes I did. We give away two sloppy goals. First for the set-piece and the second one is just a long ball down the field which we should be dealt better. We can’t give away those types of goals. We played some good build-up football from the back but we just need to take a little bit more care and in the final third to make sure that when we do get opportunities we take them,” said Des Buckingham in a post-match press conference, as per the ISL website.
