Haris Seferovic, Switzerland forward
We did a good job today and we're proud of our 4-0 victory. We should have scored more, but anyway we got three points and this is what matters to us. We missed some opportunities but I don't think you can score with every chance – though maybe we could have had three more goals – but we are happy about the result.

Vladimir Petković, Switzerland coach
I picked my best XI because we didn't want to think this game was an easy one. We weren't lucky in our first two matches, so we tried to change that tonight by creating as many opportunities as possible, but we got less than we deserved.

We watched all of San Marino's games and we didn't notice a team who were able to create as many opportunities to score as we managed to tonight. We played two different matches in the two halves: we started very well and imposed our rhythm on the game. However in the second half we lost concentration. I'd like to congratulate [San Marino goalkeeper Aldo] Simoncini – he made some quality saves.

Pajtim Kasami, Switzerland midfielder
We took the three points, which was very important after [two] defeats. The match against Lithuania will be an important game: now every game is a final for us.

Pierangelo Manzaroli, San Marino coach
I believe in teamwork and in my group. We have 30 interesting players, who made, make and will make sacrifices to be involved in this kind of game. They are an example even for professional players like the Swiss, who do this as a job.

We accept this result, knowing that the margin of defeat could have been wider and there are many things that need improving, first of all the athletic performance.

Our squad needs to be evaluated day by day. We are very proud of [Mattia] Stefanelli's performance tonight. Andy Selva was not in the right condition to play but we can rely on him. We have other players who haven't featured yet, but the next games will be an opportunity for them.

Aldo Simoncini is different class for us – he's not a professional player although he has the ability to be one. He's reaching maturity and we are very happy to have him in our team.
