I’m more than disappointed, I’ve nothing to say. Something incredible happened tonight. We deserved to win the Euros, now we’ve been really unlucky… but that’s it, that’s the reality. I’m sorry for the players.

North Macedonia will play Portugal in the final of the playoffs. The Portuguese beat Turkey 3-1 in the semi-finals to secure a place in the finals of the competition.
