Voices after the match / Source: RTVS /:
Milan Shkriniar, defender of the Slovak Republic: “We lacked a bit of luck today. It’s very difficult for me to evaluate, we put everything in it, fought and fought. Unfortunately, the record situation came and we gathered. The Croats have a good team. The spectators appreciated our efforts that pushed us forward and unfortunately I felt we were not satisfied with the result. “.
David Hanko, defender of the Slovak Republic: “At first, I looked for the left side of the defense for a while, but the better the match, the better I felt. Disappointment prevailed. Today we lacked efficiency. We had 4-5 goals to draw, but we didn’t let them.”
Stefan Tarkovic, coach of the Slovak Republic. “I dare say it was the best performance of the team under me. We left without a point, but we deserved three points. The spectators created a nice atmosphere for us and the team brought their energy back onto the field. We were able to create more chances than our opponent and better than the Croats.
In the end, Brozovic’s individual quality was ultimately determined. We lacked more peace in the end, the players wanted a lot and probably tied their legs. After that performance, I have nothing to blame them for. We will win this inevitability in the next duel with Cyprus.”
Zlatko Dalic, coach of Croatia: “We did our best, we sent comfortable players onto the field during the match. The opponent played hard, compactly, okay, so I can only congratulate us with three points.”
Marek Hamsik, midfielder and captain of the Slovak Republic: “It was a solid performance from us again. Despite his loss, the spectators appreciated the team’s performance after the final whistle. We put everything into it, we ran a lot, it hurt a lot, but it’s about modern football. One shot is decided We certainly deserved more.”
