Rennes kept its lead in the standings over Lille on goal difference, although its four-match winning streak ended with a 2-2 draw against second-from-bottom side Stade Reims.
"Nothing else," he noted. "In every practice, I asked them to fight, play strong defence and play smart in offense. This gave us the result in the second quarter."
Earlier, Schwartzman knocked out third seed Dominic Thiem in a thrilling marathon battle which lasted over five hours, winning 7-6 (7-1), 5-7, 6-7 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5), 6-2.
Amaju Pinnick, the NFF president, said with the appointment of a new head coach, he's confident that the new technical crew would take the women's team to brand new heights.
Like Baum, pundits such as Lothar Matthaeus have discovered that the Royal Blues squad lacks the speed that modern football requires.
Halep didn't play at her best, especially when facing a firing teenager who combined her drop shot and backhand so perfectly throughout the match.
"We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favorably for laurels at the global level and I believe the new technical crew, led by Waldrum, can take us to that level," Pinnick said.
"We haven't played for a long time. We played a bit tight today, but took our chance at last," said Shanxi coach Li Ge.
Moments later, new arrival Joel Pohjanpalo scored his first goal for Union only 35 seconds after coming on to put the result beyond doubt in the 64th minute.
Sevilla opened the scoring in the 7th minute when Luuk de Jong fired home with his left foot after Barca failed to deal with a corner, but Barca levelled barely a minute later when Jesus Navas was unable to clear Jordi Alba's ball into the area, allowing Coutinho to pick his spot.
Barca looked tired after their midweek efforts at Celta Vigo and there were moments in the second half when Sevilla could have won the game with more ambition. Koeman brought on the new arrivals Pedro "Pedri" Gonzalez, Francisco Trincao and Miralem Pjanic in the second half, but the feeling is that Barca's squad still looks lightweight for a full season, and the club needs to sign at least another central defender and a striker before the transfer window closes.
