“It was tough and difficult game, actually, we expected it because we knew our opponent needed this game to qualify but we knew that we have to give our best for us to be able to forge ahead.

“I was surprised when they scored the first goal, I thanked my players for showing character in the second half, scoring an equaliser and going ahead, it was a good one.
