Kakhaber Tskhadadze, Georgia coach
I respect our opponents. Just after the final whistle I approached Poland's coach and congratulated him. I said to him that his team is like a machine with great future. Every single player on the pitch knows exactly what he has to do. The team works excellently together and you can see how much the team develops.

The SKA-Energiya Khabarovsk player is a replacement for suspended captain Jaba Kankava. Solomon Kverkvelia, who is injured, also misses out.
