Mixu Paatelainen, Finland coach:


For most of the game we had two centre halves against Kyle Lafferty but there were moments when he had far too much room and he got the ball in far too easily. But I must praise Kyle's effort today, he is a tremendous striker - tall, capable and he puts himself about.

I feel Michael O'Neill can take Northern Ireland to the EUROs now. I hope Northern Ireland will qualify for Michael's sake [O'Neill and Paatelainenwere team-mates at Dundee United FC, and O'Neill was the Finnish coach's assistant at Cowdenbeath FC]; he has done very well.

Mixu Paatelainen, Finland coach:


We have super fans. I know for sure that Northern Ireland's supporters will have plenty to do to be louder than our supporters. I'd even bet that we will win – at least in the stands.
