Adam Nawalka, Poland coach
Judging by the result one might think that it was an easy win for us but in fact it was not. Georgia produced solid resistance before the break and had several chances they could not covert. We could have scored too but we were too slow before the break and our possession was mainly in the middle of the park. But our advantage became obvious in the second half and we won on merit eventually.
Grzegorz Krychowiak called Poland's game in Georgia tonight a must-win:
I am pretty sure our opponents will be totally committed, but we will not be afraid. I also know the atmosphere will be very intense at the stadium, but that will not have a negative influence on us. We came here to take three points – that is our duty, it's a must. I believe in my team and I am glad we have made such progress, not only in terms of results, but in the atmosphere in the camp as well. Before, when we did not win games, the team spirit was not as good as it is now. We used to wonder how it was possible that a team with really good players did not win. Now we have found our way. I expect a tough game as a lot of good teams have had problems here; Spain, France, Ireland... they all know how difficult is to play well in Tbilisi. But we took four points from our games against Germany and Scotland, so expectations are very high and that is good. That is why the only acceptable scenario for us is to win this match and show we are able to maintain that good form.
