Reaction:
Sakib Malkočević, Bosnia and Herzegovina coach
"We entered this match in a difficult spot as both Serbia and Ireland were in a better situation than us. There was a lot of pressure, but my players had a very good match and deserved to win. We were unfortunate enough not to get the second goal that would have taken us through – luck was on Ireland's side."

Perica Ognjenović, Serbia coach
"That's football, a lot of matches like this are ahead of these players. Luck was not on our side. We were in the next round untill the last minute of the match."
