Marians Pahars, Latvia coach:


We could have won the game, but we also could have lost it at the very end. I have to be happy because we are just a small footballing nation, and we have gained an away point. On top of that, it was against the best team in our group. I could be a little bit disappointed, considering we might have gone 2-0 up, but at the end we are satisfied with the point we have.

I used the best players I could and, in my opinion, the best I had at my disposal. It was no experimental lineup. They were mentally and physically ready for the game, but of course, the squad could be totally different in the space of a month. Both the debutants played really well. For me, Gints Freimanis played the game of his life, and Igors Tarasovs had a blinder as a defensive midfielder. Those are my first impressions; I am very happy for both of them.
