Reflecting on the fixture, Hojbjerg was modest in his evaluation and shared there is more to come from their group.

“The game was okay,” Pierre reflected. “I think we made some good steps forward, but we still have a lot to do.

“Luckily, this is what pre-season games are for. This is us, this is who we want to be, this is who we are, and we still have steps to take. It was an okay start.”
