What Gordon Strachan said after the match in Bratislava -

"I’ve been in football management for 8 years and as a player for 25 years and this is without doubt the worst football night. I thought I had been tested quite a lot as a manager before – this is a big test – a disappointment is not the best adjective for tonight. At this moment after a result like this we are all in shock, to be honest. It is very hard to be coherent after this result."
