Georgian Coach Temuri Ketsbaia said his team lost to the best team ever after the 1-0 World Cup qualifier defeat to Spain.
The 44-year-old, who numbers AEK Athens, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers among his former clubs, reiterated his comments before the game that the Spanish were the best team of all time.
“We were beaten by the best team ever in a game where we showed a lot of commitment and sacrifice. Luck was not on our side tonight,” Ketsbaia told a Press conference in reference to Spain’s winning goal four minutes from time.
“I am proud of my players, who are the future of this national team.”
Ketsbaia also revealed that Giuorgui Loria will be subjected to tests on Wednesday to find out the seriousness of his injury.
The Georgian goalkeeper had to be stretchered off on 72 minutes to be replaced by Roin Kvaskhvadze after suffering an apparent knee problem.
