 coach of the youth team: "With all the long week we've had, and we've done amazing things - this victory won't be worth anything if we don't do the same thing tomorrow, but about today - first of all we have to tell the kids a lot, a lot, a lot, breathe. We started well, and at a level Like on Wednesday against Lithuania. Later the balls didn't go in, with fouls, penalties and bursts. We were still in the game thanks to the defense.

At the beginning of the half, the two Greeks reversed the result, and it seemed that it was not going in our direction.

The guys still showed a lot of character, even those who came off the bench brought us extras.

I'm glad we did it nicely in the end.

Tomorrow is what really matters.

I want the whole hall to be full, encouraging and supportive."
