The Luxembourgers are saved the honor following a penalty converted by Rodrigues (72nd). “I am disappointed with the performance of the team. We were bad in the game by being too slow and too imprecise, ”explained Luc Holtz.


Little surprise in the group of the national team, which will face Cyprus and Montenegro in the framework of the League of Nations in October, with the arrival of the player from Sparta Rotterdam.


The national coach particularly regretted the defensive mistakes: “Liechtenstein acted with long balls looking for the fast Salanovic. Our central defenders defended poorly. We behaved like kindergarten. ” And the Ettelbruckois concluded: “We have to concentrate on the matches on Saturday and Tuesday but this defeat is not ideal”.

As a reminder, Luxembourg must face Cyprus, this Saturday October 10 at the Josy Barthel stadium at 3 p.m., and Montenegro, October 13 at 8:45 p.m. in Podgorica, on behalf of the League of Nations.
