Armenian website has posted this rallying response to the national side's 2-1 defeat by Denmark yesterday.

We need to go with our heads up [high]. Guys, you did everything you could do at the time. Thank you. We had many problems because of the loss of Yura Movsisyan and Araz Ozbiliz [to injury]. Karlen Mkrtchyan is not in the best condition while Robert Arzumanyan and Henrikh Mkhitaryan asked to be substituted after picking up knocks. Our team did everything they could. This defeat means nothing. We have two more matches in 2014. We need to win against a strong Serbia team and then to start thinking about Cristiano Ronaldo & Co.

Bernard Challandes will be without Yura Movsisyan and Aras Özbiliz for his first competitive game as Armenia coach. Armenia face Denmark in Copenhagen on Sunday, having won 4-0 there in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in June 2013, a match in which Movsisyan scored twice and Özbiliz once.

"Armenia can expect the match to be very different from the one they played last year here. That game was strange. If you start a match by conceding a goal after only 30 seconds, it of course changes things dramatically," said the Swiss coach.

"Denmark play a different type of football now, let me call it tiki-taka from the north. They are very good with the ball, have very good possession and are very offensive minded. Offensively, Denmark are extremely strong. If anybody thinks that Denmark are not a strong team because of Armenia's 4-0 win here last year, they are stupid."
