Bernard Challandes, Armenia coach:
We had a very good first half; we scored and we were playing well, but in the second half, Albania were better than us. I told my team at the break that we had to score again to win the match. We are not a team that wins matches 1-0. We had a chance until the 70th minute, when Hovhannes Hambardzumyan got his second yellow card.
