My team deserved to play in the elite round. I still have regrets because of the mistakes against Montenegro. Even today, I made a mistake when I didn't substitute Luka Zarandia in time and he will now miss the first game of the next phase. However, before then Giorgi Tevzadze and Jemal Tabidze will join us and we will have a more balanced team.

Elite round draw: 3 December
