Claudiu Keșerü, Romania's goalscorer in the 1-0 victory against the Faroe Islands, said "it doesn't matter how you win" after the home side were kept down to one goal in Ploiesti.

"I am happy with the win and with the fact I scored," he said, adding of the hosts muted performance: "It doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win. We created several openings although it's also true that we lacked clarity and concentration in front of goal. However, it was important not to concede – that is also a target which was achieved.

Anghel Iordănescu, Romania coach:


The scoreline was close but we completely deserved tp win. We have a lot of skilful players and a soft, wet pitch did not help them to play as well as they usually can. Anything can happen in football - anything. If you have to play defensively, then that is what you have to do, no matter who you are up against. Greece didn't do that and they lost 1-0 at home against the Faroe Islands. I am not happy with the way my team played but I am satisfied with the effort they put it in on the field.
