Vrbica Stefanov, F.Y.R. of Macedonia:
"What can I say? I can only congratulate to the Croatian team. That's all."
Marko Popovic, Croatia:
"It was a hard game. They had so many shots and were very efficient. After the first half, when we had minus 14, we were really surprised. But then we showed character and won. Now we are more confident before the next round."
Jovica Arsic, F.Y.R. of Macedonia Coach:
"I have to congratulate our rival. We had a good first half, but then Croatia absolutely dominated the game. They had tough defense and we couldn't do anything."
Jasmin Repesa, Croatia Coach:
"There were many mistakes that we cannot repeat in the next round. We have to think it over. Psychologically this game was much more difficult for us then yesterday's match against Greece. Today there was more pressure on my team, while they were relaxed and confident."
