What the coaches say

Highlights: Iceland 0-3 Denmark

Iceland coach Erik Hamrén : “We had three tough matches in six days, both mentally and physically. My goal for these matches was to have as few players as possible start all three matches. Is this job harder? We have tough opponents in the Nations League and it is very difficult to score points. ”

Roberto Martínez, Belgium manager: “We played very well in the first half [in the defeat against England], but the second half was not good enough. That's why you lose the match. Although we had a few good chances. It's embarrassing to lose. . ”
