Alar Varrak: Our guys really wanted to prove themselves and they really wanted to win this game. I’m pleased with their effort and I’m happy that in equal teams’ battle we won: we showed that we were better team tonight.
Zoran Martic: We brought here to Tallinn many young players, to try new things. Since I just took the team 10 days ago, we need some time to get adjusted with each other. Some of the things in the game we tried I liked, some not so much.
