Of course I'm pleased we finished top of the group, although there is room for improvement in our game. As for the last match [against Bosnia and Herzegovina], I must admit that I am not satisfied with the way my players performed. The Bosnians, who were in excellent physical condition, imposed themselves and we should have responded with better ball control and more skill. In the upcoming period we will try out some new players and see if they can fit into the team

Elite round draw: 3 December
