Alex McLeish there trying his best to find something to be upbeat about.
But the Scotland head coach has much thinking to do ahead of Monday's Nations League opener at home to Albania.
Scotland have suffered their worst home defeat in 45 years and it only makes it slightly less painful that it came at the hands of the second best team in the world.
They have to dust themselves down and shrug off any feelings of despondency.
Monday was always the more important game and it has taken on greater significance after Albania beat Israel to give Monday's visitors a head start in what is a short sprint in their three-team group.
Join us on Monday to see if McLeish's side can bounce back and claim only their second win in six games under his tenure.
