Pepe: 'We lacked efficiency'

"We had a lot of chances," said Nicolas Pepe on RMC Sport after Nice's 1-2 defeat to Slovacko. "They did well - they had two or three chances, and they were able to score. We made a mistake and we got a red, well, we don't know if it was a red. It's football, there was a bit of contact, they are shoulder to shoulder. But these are facts of the game that we have to accept unfortunately. Did Sofiane Diop's being subbed off or Jean-Clair Todibo's red card destabilise us? Sofiane is a player with a lot of quality, so it's a plus if he's there, but we have a good bench. It wasn't Sofiane's going off, nor JC's either, it was the whole package. Unfortunately, tonight, they were effective."
