Faroe Islands goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen was unhappy with the 1-0 defeat at Romania on Sunday. "We still have ambitions even though we're a small country," he stated. "We prepared for this match in order to win, because this is our mentality. Romania deserved their victory but we were in the game and you can be sure that we'll get more points in the future. Right now I am disappointed."

Faroe Islands coach Lars Olsen was left in the odd position of having to defend the winning side after home supporters in Ploiesti voiced their disappointment following Romania's 1-0 victory on Sunday.

"They were the better team and created many more opportunities than us," said Olsen, adding: "I do not agree with the people who say this is a weak Romania team. The Romanians know how to keep possession. They have some very skilful players, such as Lucian Sănmărtean, and they deserved the victory."

"Generally, though, I'm satisfied with the performance, if not the result," he continued. "What I'm most satisfied with is that we were in the game throughout. We haven't always been able to do that against strong opposition like Romania. That warms my heart because it is something we work for – to close the gap on the higher-ranked teams. We are now doing that."
