Per-Mathias Høgmo, Norway coach


We are very disappointed. It’s a match we wanted to win, and it has been our focus all the way. We know we met a team that plays defensively and we did not have enough pace in what we did, offensively or defensivly.  In the last 25 minutes we changed our formation from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 and we played very well, creating some big chances but were unable to score any goals. This has been our biggest challenge lately.

We didn’t succeed in scoring an early goal, and didn’t succeed in make our chances count in the later stages of the game. Azerbaijan's tactics were as expected. Defensive, laying low in their own half, and denying space.
