Moncho López, Portugal coach:
"I think today we achieved an important victory. We surprised our opponents, not only in attack, but in defense too, especially Stefanov. I want to thank the dedication of my players, even of the ones that didn't play, because they are all important."
Jovica Arsic, FYR of Macedonia coach:
"Portugal played much better. In the beginning we allowed some easy points. It was like the game against Estonia, but that one we managed to win. Today we played against a very dedicated team in defense, who after getting a 10-point advantage they did not allow us to reach them."
