Magnus Pehrsson, Estonia coach
I'm happy with my team's performance. We knew that we had to win this game and we deserved to win it. It was not a perfect performance, but definitely it was enough. I don't think that a coach should be nervous on the bench and I was not. We had ideas, we had a structure of a game, but we were not effective and determined enough. But I felt that we were getting better and better.
Then we scored the first goal and that was important for us. Today's win was crucial. Any result but win would make it almost impossible for us to finish among the three best teams in the group. We still have a chance.
