Dick Advocaat was disappointed by the Feyenoord draw against Rangers FC on Thursday (2-2). The coach of the Rotterdam team was very positive about the first half of his team.
"I'm a bit disappointed here. I think it was more than 2-2. This was the best first half of Feyenoord under my leadership," said 72-year-old Lawyer after the game against FOX Sports .
"Also in the way we played. It took a lot of strength, but they did well," Lawyer continued. "That starts in the front with the chase and that is taken over by midfield. I thought that was good. You can make it difficult for everyone if you are willing to do this."
Feyenoord took the lead against Rangers FC via Jens Toornstra after half an hour of play, but two goals from Alfredo Morelos led the Rotterdam-squad to chase after the break. Luis Sinisterra signed for the final score of 2-2.
Lawyer was disappointed that his team was unable to score anymore for the break. "There is a difference in that. They get two chances and those are two goals. Furthermore, I cannot remember that they have been at our goal."

Feyenoord must win from Porto and hope
Feyenoord can still make it to the next round of the Europa League, but the scenario is not easy. The number ten in the Eredivisie must win on December 12 at FC Porto and then hope that Rangers FC wins at home from Young Boys.
"Then we just have to do it in Porto. I see Rangers winning from Young Boys at home. But then we also have to win, hey. We have to reward ourselves, because we didn't do that today," said Advocaat.
The match between FC Porto and Feyenoord starts on Thursday December 12 at 9 p.m. At that time, the ball also starts rolling at Rangers FC-Young Boys.
