There is no "fun" match when you are playing under the country flag. They are getting paid, aren't they? Not taking a game seriously (whatever the format is) is a sign of disrespect for the fans and the country.
I don't mind that they lost, because anything can happen in this format, but the way they played clearly showed that they didn't take this game seriously or made any serious effort to go for a win.
It was a trash game, to put it simply.
