Lars Lagerbäck, Iceland coach
This was how we wanted to play. It's easy to coach these boys. We played against a really good side tonight. In the second half we played very well and they barely had a chance. We turned the tables after conceding the first goal. The boys did great and I'm very pleased to beat a strong and well organize Czech team.
I'd be lying if I said we aren't in a good position. If you had offered me 15 points from the first six games beforehand I would gladly have accepted that. We have improved with each game since me and Heimir [Hallgrímsson] took over. What we are happiest about is the goalscoring. You can win a game 1-0 with good defensive play but we have scored a lot in this group. Of course I hope the team can keep on improving.
Iceland pair Jóhann Gudmundsson and Hannes Halldórsson have both been assessing Friday's top-of-the-table meeting with the Czech Republic in Group A.
"It would be good to get a point but we are at home so will take all three," said Gudmundsson. "We have seen in previous games that we do not have to be at our best to have a chance but if we have a perfect game we can clearly beat them."
Goalkeeper Halldórsson added: "We expect the Czechs will play a similar tactic to the first game: aggressive and pressing. Their coach is a tricky one, who can come up with something so we mus be prepared for anything."
