He said: "The result is wonderful, but it is even more enjoyable to opposition fans cheering our team."

Of our performance, he said:

"Our game was really fluent. Our passing and movement gave them many problems. We were really up for it as well. And of course we took our chances. The third goal just before half-time was probably decisive.

"We pushed forward again at the start of the second half and the third and fourth goals came quickly. We never relaxed as we could have done at 3-0.

"Overall I'm very pleased with the way we played and our sharpness. We were able to keep our concentration over 90 minutes and our attitude showed that we want to stick to the quality of our game.

"When confidence is high like this, the players really enjoy it."
