Volyn’s footballer Vanka Shikov talked with the press after the match with the Carpathians. Recall that the fight ended with a score of 2: 0 in favor of the Lviv.
– We really needed a victory today, we carefully prepared for this match. Everyone knew about the special status of the fight. But already in the first seconds this happened … Psychologically, the goal of Lucas seriously broke us, and it turned out only by the tenth minute of the fight to recover. Had several points, did not realize them, and in such fights should be embodied in the clogged balls. In general, the game was equal, and after the second goal, it was actually all over.
– Why were they so terribly mistaken when the first goal was scored in our gates?
– I just looked at the repet, really – just a childish mistake. Everyone literally parted in front of Lucas.
– The team can get into a specific psychological hole?
– You need to forget about defeat as soon as possible, responsibly approach the match with the Vorskla and win three points.
– How do you like the atmosphere in the stadium?
– Football needs to play for the audience. Our fans helped us today, so I want to apologize for such a defeat. Moreover, the defeat has become the second row.
– What you played on Wednesday for the national team affected physical condition?
– All players now have fatigue … I really have a little long for Making Macedonia, but this is the game for the national team, this is our duty.
– You went to the game with the captain’s bandage. Whose solution it was?
– It was a decision of the coach. I was once a captain when Siminin received an injury at the training camp in Slovenia. This status always enhances responsibility. An official debut has now taken place in the rank of captain, it is a pity that it was marked by defeat.
