PSV Eindhoven captain Phillip Cocu insists his side have not come to Liverpool for a holiday ahead of the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final.
The Dutch champions go into the game at Anfield on Wednesday trailing 3-0 from the first leg in Holland.
Despite the size of their task, Cocu is adamant that PSV will give it their all as they try to regain some pride.
"We need more than a miracle to beat Liverpool and reach the semi-finals but we are not going to England just for a holiday," Cocu told the Daily Star.
"It is obvious that in Eindhoven they were the better side, but I thought the 3-0 scoreline was harsh.
"We had some chances to score but we didn't take them.
"We are not going to throw this game because we are playing for pride and we don't want it to be ridiculous.
"Any kind of win at Anfield would leave a good taste in our mouths, so we will try to score a goal and see what happens."
