Southampton defender Maya Yoshida urged his team to bounce back from their “painful” League Cup defeat to Manchester United when they visit Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.
“We have no time to cry anymore, so just head up and move on to get back on track,” he said.
“We tried to accomplish something in the final, there was a lot of heartbreak, but still we have massive confidence about ourselves.
“Of course it’s painful but we have to move on because we have another important competition in the Premier League.
He added: “It’s not easy, but we have to (go on).
“We lost but we shouldn’t move on as a loser, we have to be still like warriors and show our character.”
