However, I'm really happy for my squad, they responded well to changes in these few days, this result is their merit. It's only the first match and we have a tight schedule so there is no time for too much praise. We need to improve many things, which is why it's good that we conceded that goal, so that I can demonstrate the players through analysis what went wrong" said coach Oreščanin after the victory in Zagreb.
