Maher Kanzari (TUN), Tunisia coach
"It's great to earn maximum points in the first game. To win is as important as not to lose. We came here to win and we've done it. Now we're on a roll. We played very good football in the first 25 minutes, but the second half was very tough although we defended very well. Even after the dismissal, we didn't change our tactics so much but our midfielders had to play more defensively.
