What the coaches say
Swedish coach Janne Andersson : "We performed well, but unfortunately we haven't scored yet. At the same time, a Swedish national team has probably never faced such a good opponent in a few games before. We want to stay. Play in League A and train to play these tough matches with the best opponent possible. The host Croatia match will be an important match. Winning that match is a prerequisite to stay in the A League'

I have to have a clear picture at the end of November and be realistic and objective – Croatia We are building a new team. It's good to show, Croatia' has a future.
