"Congratulations to Switzerland. What I was afraid would happen, it did. We played strong on defense and confined Switzerland to 61 points but unfortunately we couldn't score 62. We will now try to win the next two games."
Sebastian Radult, Switzerland coach:
"We are pleased to win against a strong opponent. We controlled the game in the first 35 minutes but offensively we didn't have clear options. Switzerland, Cyprus and Romania are similar teams with not many differences. I thank the Cypriot team and federation for their hospitality."
