Liubov Fedorenko, Head Coach of Ukraine: We couldn’t manage to score enough goals, so that was a big flaw. Even though we had some problematic details while preparing for the game, we managed to create good moments from the very beginning.
Alexandros Tarinidis, Head coach of Greece: I think my team didn’t play well in the first half, so we tried to change the score in the second. Maybe if we played the way we did in the second half, throught the whole game, we could’ve won.
