Robert Prosinečki, Azerbaijan coach:


This was our present to the Azerbaijani people for Novruz [Azeri new year celebration]. We played well for 90 minutes. We can play better, but I think 2-0 is a good score. We had lost our first four games and we wanted to win this one. There was huge pressure on us. We scored quickly, but of course, not everything went to plan. We made mistakes. We will work on them. I had three new players in squad. Of course, Malta are not the best footballing nation, but we had huge pressure from the media too.

Cavid Hüseynov should be appreciated today. He played really well. We should talk about the positive things. I saw Malta's match against Croatia and Italy. They have a new system. Big teams will have to work hard when they take on Malta.
