“We want to digest this win before thinking about who we would prefer to meet in the semi-final,” Rajevic, the former defender and coach of ex-European champions Red Star Belgrade, said with the help of his translator.”
“Of course we are missing players like Essien, Appiah and Anthony Annan. We have had to call up a lot of new players but what I have here is a team with a very competitive spirit and a competitive style of play.”
“There is an excellent atmosphere in our team which is very important.”
“We made a good assessment of Angola before the match. We knew they were very good in the air and also dangerous attacking down the right side. So we arranged to cancel these dangers out.”
“Fortunately we scored an early goal, then we decided to defend the result, waiting for the chance to counter-attack when Angola left us enough space.
“This match was very tough and difficult, both from the players’ point of view and leading from the bench.”
“This is an important victory for us, a very hard victory. I’m happy to see that my guys know how to compete.”
“This team can definitely can get better.”
