Igoris Pankratjevas, Lithuania coach

The Swiss team makes you pay for every small mistake and we suffered. We chose more defensive tactics and Switzerland controlled possession. We used all our chances on the counterattacks that we had. We scored the first goal and we gained confidence. We wanted to score again, but conceded instead. I was pleased with the dedication from all the players on the pitch.
