Head Coach Nikola Popovic
"I think it was a bad start, however, from that moment, we were the better team and we were able to keep our composure. After their goal, it was chance after chance for us. We found a way to come back, then take the lead, and then score a third one, which was very good. Considering the number of shots on goal we had, you have to think that 3-1 is a low score for us, but it definitely was a fine performance after the first goal."
