Craig Bellamy was disappointed by the 2-2 draw with New Zealand, despite his brace of goals that saved Wales.
Bellamy's two goals failed to console him
"We should beat New Zealand, but you have to go out and earn the right to overcome teams like that - maybe we were complacent," said Bellamy.
"I felt that I was sharp at the start of the game, but I faded later. The truth is, it's rare that I get 90 minutes these days.
"We have to get better ready for the Czechs next week and I'm sure we will."
New Zealand's two-goal hero, Shane Smeltz, was in a very different mood after the game.
"We're delighted with the result and will enjoy this evening," the Halifax striker told BBC Sport Wales.
"We didn't have our first team out, but we had a bunch of guys willing to work for each other.
"A lot of the blokes in the Welsh team are players that we all look up to, hopefully people around the world will see this result and give us credit."
