“I can be very satisfied with how we played and the result, – quotes the words of head coach Frank Vercauteren official site of the Samara club. – Although I know that the second half was not on the same level as the first. We had more issues with ball control, game control, with access to secure, although we had chances to make the scoreline bigger. In the first half we did not give any chance to the opposition and was more effective. But in the second, instead of trying to complete the game, we ran into problems in those moments when they can be avoided. In other situations it could be very important.”
We will add that earlier the team of Frank Vercauteren suffered five defeats and three draws. After the first victory “wings of the Soviets” (6) left the last place in the standings.
