I'm personally kind of tired of these type of Israeli-style excuses, that we often hear after Israel plays international football matches etc. Almost is not the same as actually winning a match, is not the same as actually qualifying.
Enough with the almost. If she wants to improve, the satisfaction over "almost" has to be minor.
