Ilídio Vale, Portugal coach
The match was difficult. We expected that it wouldn't be easy in Yerevan. The match proved that the Armenian team has a big future. The most important thing for us was to win, which we did. Thanks to our players' desire to win.
Fernando Santos on Group I leaders' Portugal game against Armenia on Sunday: "We'll face many difficulties, but we're ready to play to the best of our abilities. Armenia caused us several problems in the home game [a 1-0 win for Portugal] and this one is like a final for them. Despite this being the end of the season, the players are not thinking about their holidays. They are excellent professionals, focused, and we want to win, because three points would put us in a great position. I think we are going to make it."
