Holland captain Edwin van der Sar admitted his side were fortunate to claim three points from the Euro 2008 Group G qualifier against Albania.

Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy scored in stoppage time for a 1-0 victory, allowing the Oranje to move level on points at the top of the table with Romania.

"We are very happy with this," said Van der Sar. "What we tried to do was good, but it just didn´t work out like we planned."
