We created a couple of chances, could at the end to snatch victory.

I cried, especially in the first few minutes that we ate not going to play more aggressive, then nothing happens, because we are very easily lost the ball in simple situations, the selections all lost.

We knew that they have built up a line of 5 people ahead connect liberos. They have a simulated combination, when large attackers serves the ball, they are one-touch reset, and then goes a long cast.

We were ready for it, but to counter you need to win, if not first, then at least the second goal,” – said Stepanenko, the TV channel Football 1.
