Here is the reaction of Dinamo's coach, Zoran Mamić

First of all, I would like to congratulate my team on a great performance and I have to say I am both happy and very emotional right now. Even after we conceded a gaol so soon after we scored the team remained concentrated and focused on the game showing both strength and quality. Even when we were down to ten men, I stayed positive. I think we played well and fully deserved to qualify to the group stage".

Champions League draw is tomorrow in Monaco and Dinamo could be facing football giants such as Real Madrid, Bayern and Lyon.
