Belgium head coach Eddy Casteels
"The game had tough moments, the pressure was evident all the time but we needed to win and did our best. Albania is a small country and Belgium as well but we had qualified to Lithuania and needed for sure to qualify for Slovenia too. Albania have pretty good players such as Hysenagolli, Shima who are amazing talents."
Albania head coach Roland Avrami
"The guys tried to play harder this game as it was the last and at home, but we didn't have the chance to satisfy our spectators. I tried to make the neccesary changes in order not to overload their efforts up to the end."
Belgium player Christophe Beghin
"To us, this was a very important game to qualify for Slovenia, we needed this victory. We had different experiences in Switzerland, we won at home by 40 points difference and lost there. We think we deserved to win because we have great talents and a new generation."
Albania player Afrim Bilali
"I don't have any special comment to give, what we did is our best but victory was not on our side in this Eurobasket qualification round."
