Alexandru Curteian, Moldova coach
It was a very emotional game with lots of opportunities for both teams to score. Unfortunately we did not manage to convert as many as we wanted. In this game I used two young players and this combination inspires me for the future. I believe we will win a game in the remaining qualifiers.
Alexandru Curteian has named three news faces – Eugen Zasaviţchi, Eugeniu Cociuc and Nicolae Milinceanu – in his Moldova squad for the friendly against Luxembourg tomorrow and the Group G qualifier away to Liechtenstein on Sunday. Victor Golovatenco, Viorel Frunză and Hellas Verona FC midfielder Artur Ioniţa, Moldova's main man, have been left out due to injuries. Another key figure, Alexandru Gaţcan, is only available for the trip to Vaduz. "We want revenge for the [1-0] home defeat against Liechtenstein [in November] and prove it was an accident," said defender Igor Armaş.
