The FC “Gazprom-UGRA” having won the third game against the Moscow “Dina” now is leading in the quarters playoffs series of the Russian Championship of the 2015/16 season.
Andrey Yudin, head coach of the ISK “Dina”:
– There are nuances in such games. When the first half we were ahead by 1-0, there was a moment when we could shoot from ten meters. This is, of course, depends on the judge. We missed quite a ridiculous goal, so called “in the changing room”. Of course, it added strength to our guests, we had to keep our level. Taking into account the fact we lost some players during the game, it was important to finalize all the movements in the defense, to look for any opportunities in the counterattacks, the thing that, in general we had luck with. We had moments when we could and should have gone forward, use at least one of the two opportunities when Esquerdinha played one against one. But this is football, probably the strongest won today. We had our opportunities today, but we did not use them. We know that “Gazprom” has ones of the best pivots. With the score 4-0 in Yugorsk they had the following pivots playing: Afanasiev and Lyskov, and we could deal with it, our defense played very well. Today Evgeniy Misharin had fever, and he was in charge for this position, probably somewhere we felt lack of him. We do not have such powerful players, we should have some defenders playing with pivots that could decide the game.
Kaka, head coach of the FC “Gazprom-UGRA”:
– I should note that total dedication of our players, responsibility, willpower I saw and the way they followed our game plan. It is very hard to play after a home defeat when you should take initiative, work on the result, keep concentration. Today our players managed to resist this tension, they kept doing till the very end what we should’ve done and achieved this victory. This is totally the merit of our players, I can only thank them.
We work together, I always say that all the victories that our team has had is also the merit of our coaching staff, without them I’m certainly weaker. I thank them, they always help me. I can look at one direction; they look at the other. I was told that the opponents were trying to take a time-out, they told me it right in time I could do something with that, and we had to control the ball, to prevent them from doing so. We told it to the players and could win some time. Therefore, our today’s victory is the work of the coaching staff, management, staff, everyone who works here.
I said before the game that it is desirable to score the first goal, but we must be prepared that we can miss the first, nothing should change, we need to continue to believe in our game plan. We lost the second game whitewash because we did not deserve to score. But today we had that desire, fiery eyes, the guys followed the game plan, we only needed to achieve the result.
