Feyenoord – Spartak: post-match comments Теги: FEYENOORD HARTIES SHITOV SPARTAK VASHKEVICH
— There is no easy opponents on the tournament
as well as there is no time for recovering. That is why we had five players in
the starting XI who went on substitution in the previous match. For sure we’d
like to see the same coherent performance with new players as we had in the
previous matches. But we were not good at it today. We started so-so. Had
enough chances but were not cold-blooded in ball control and lost it too much
in dribble or passing. Also in finishing we could not convert our chances into
Feyenoord were faster and more active at the
beginning. After the goal conceded we started create chances. However the
quality of our performance today was much worse then in the previous matches at
We saw take-no-prisoners performance from both
teams today. Both teams tried to play in attacking manner sometimes even with
loose defense. There were many chances for both teams. I guess it looked very
interesting for fans but for coaches it is thought-provoking performance.

I liked our today opponents very much.
Feyenoord is the youngest team here but today they were really hard to beat.
We aimed to win but even the draw at last
brought us the trophy. We learned that after the last match of the day so by
now I just send congratulations for my guys via WhatsApp. On Sunday before the
match against Atalanta I will tell them the same personally.
Sincere congratulations for our players and
everyone involved. It Is the great victory of the whole Academy. It is great
that Spartak Cup was revived after long period and the most pleasant think is
that Spartak have won the trophy. More than that I liked that in some matches
we showed great performance. The team made a huge work, overcame certain
troubles such as numerous injuries. I would like to thank the players from U16
team – we have been the same crew all this week.
We are looking forward to good performance
against Atalanta despite this match won’t affect our primacy. I am sure that
lads will do their best to keep the same high level of performance as they did
in matches against Dynamo and Rangers.

fourth one. Perhaps we lacked concentration. We needed third goal and had
It is not for the first time when I play for
team one year older so I feel comfortable enough here. The attitude is very
good, guys always ready to help each other.
— It was a good match. We were aware that
Spartak is a very strong team so we prepared seriously. We struggled till the
final whistle and could even win If we had more luck.
Today draw is the third at the tournament for
us. But that doesn’t mean that we are not eager to win. We score not as many as
we can and as we want yet.
