Ján Kozák, Slovakia coach:
We had enough time to study the game of Luxembourg. They are organised and they attack in numbers after winning the ball. They are not under pressure to attain results. The first half was really good from our side, we scored three goals and created further opportunities. In the second half, we did not want to concede. Of course, I expected more goals after break, but we had the game under control in front of full stadium with a great atmosphere.
I think this team is getting better and better. There is competition for places in the starting lineup, there is great team spirit, we are all looking forward to our international games. We need 24 points to be guaranteed a spot at the EURO 2016, according to my calculations.
We have picked out matches like this one - against Luxembourg, Macedonia and Belarus. If we win these games at home, we have a great chance to qualify.
Viktor Pečovský, who has featured in all 360 minutes of Slovakia's campaign so far, described their points haul in Group C as "unbelievable". The group leaders have earned 12 points from their opening four games. Pečovský, was selected for the national side just before his 30th birthday in 2012, but has since become an integral part of the squad.
