Tasos Kissas, Cyprus goalkeeper


We knew how hard this game would be. We knew that they are one of the best teams in the world at the moment. We prepared mentally and physically for this game but Belgium were on a good day. We tried to keep the score down but we couldn't and that hurts us.

We need to stay focused on the game against Andorra which we want to win so we can be ready for our next home tie against Wales. But we have to win in Andorra to go up to nine points so we can keep on hoping in this group.

Constantinos Makrides, Cyprus captain 


This game was harder than what we expected. Belgium were a fantastic side with many, many talented players. I have been around for a long time and they are one of the best sides I have ever faced. This was a heavy defeat but we need to lift our heads and dust ourselves down. We look ahead.

We have targets in this group. This game is a one-off defeat. We look to the game against Andorra. The positive is that some of the younger players earned some experience in this game. We have talented players and this defeat will help them grow as players.
